You will need eleven years to view everything it has on display.  Russia’s largest museum survived a devastating fire, the October revolution and Nazi’s bombings, constantly expanding and renovating. A cultural jewel box, an architectural masterpiece, a historical legend, the Hermitage is often compared to a phoenix.
