Somerset House: The Hermitage RoomsTHE HERMITAGE ROOMS ARE NO LONGER OPERATING AS AN EXHIBITION SPACE.

From April 2008 two of the Rooms became the London base of The State Hermitage Museum, run by the Friends of the Hermitage. The Friends facilitate collaborations between Russia's grand Museum in St Petersburg and institutions throughout the UK, including those based in Somerset House. The impressive collection is housed in the former imperial palace buildings and began life as the private art collection of the imperial family. As you'd expect from such opulent beginnings, it is one of the grandest museums in the world. The Museum owns one of the world's greatest collections of Old Master paintings, important Impressionist and Post-Impressionist works, Classical antiquities, European and Russian applied arts, Oriental art and items excavated by archaeologists throughout the former Soviet Union. The collection has continued to grow since it was nationalised and today runs to some three million items, compared to one million in 1917.
