Founded in 1764 by Russian ruler Catherine the Great, The State Hermitage museum in St. Petersburg is one of the largest and oldest museums in the world. It has been open to the public since 1852.
In honor of its 250th anniversary, filmmakers were allowed access to the museum to share with all fans of art, architecture and the culture and history of Russia. Hermitage Revealed reveals the museum’s tumultuous history from imperial palace to state museum and offers unprecedented access to special collections.
From Rembrandt to Russian masterpieces, from prehistoric artefacts to the private gemstone collection of Catherine The Great, from Michelangelo to Matisse and much, much more, the exquisite treasures the Hermitage has to offer are seemingly endless.
Playing in selected theaters on November 16 and 19 only.
