- Over the past two years, various online activities have proved themselves an integral part of our lives, so we are happy to introduce a new Hermitage Friends’ category: ‘Friends Online’.

‘Friends Online’ provides an opportunity for supporting the State Hermitage Museum distantly, taking part in the museum life without visiting it in person and joining the international community of art admirers united by their love for the Hermitage. Making an online-donation of 500 RUB, you will receive a Letter of Gratitude signed by the General Director of the State Hermitage Museum. As a Friend Online, you will also enjoy access to special online events and mailings from the Hermitage Friends’ Club.

We hope that now people from other cities, who love the State Hermitage Museum, will also join the Hermitage Friends’ Club!
