Published 23 March 2022

Dear Friends,

We are happy to inform you about the cancellation of the necessary advance booking of museum visits for the Hermitage Friends.

With your Friends' card, you are again welcome to visit the State Hermitage Museum any time convenient within the museum's working hours:

Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Sundays 11.00 AM – 6.00 PM (last admission at 4.00 PM); Saturdays 11.00 AM – 8.00 PM (last admission at 6.00 PM).

We also remind you that from 4 March 2022, presentation of a QR code is no longer required to visit the museum.

Friends enter the museum through the Komendantsky entrance (Palace Square side) by scanning the bar-code on your Friends’ card at the turnstiles. Of the temporary restrictions, the requirement to wear a mask still remains in place. The remaining measures introduced to safeguard public health will be further amended by the museum’s services. Please check for the announcements on the website and in the social media.

We are looking forward to seeing you in the Hermitage!
