You can add up to 2 tickets for children (up to 16 years old) to the electronic voucher if you have a supporting document, such as a birth certificate or a passport. You can get individual children's tickets directly in the museum itself.
*Museum days off are Mondays, January 1st and May 9th. If your second calendar day on the voucher falls on a day off, you can come to the museum the next day (Tuesday, January 2 or May 10, respectively).
Where can I buy the voucher?
You can purchase an entrance voucher to the Winter Palace with a commission on our website. We accept bank cards and cash payments (both in our office and through payment terminals).
Please pay attention that both types of vouchers give the opportunity to visit any of the museums only 1 time during the selected day.
Are there any discounts?
You can get a free admission for children under 18 years of age, students, cadets, senior citizens. Furthermore, everyone can visit the Winter Palace for free on the third Thursday of every month.
Citizens of the Russian Federation or the Republic of Belarus have a discount, so the ticket price will be 300 rubles. If you wish, you can buy a complex ticket to visit several objects of the Hermitage at the same time. The cost of it starts from 400 rubles. If you want to get a discount, we advise you to have your identification documents with you.
For citizens of other countries, the cost will be higher, in amount of 700 rubles for a complex admission ticket.
The best way to visit the Winter Palace is with a personal guide. You can also join and listen to the guiding tour of any of the passing groups. Besides, audio guides are available for you in the museum.
Hot season in the Winter Palace is summer and school holidays. During this period, you should be ready for long queues. In winter and on weekdays it's much better, and if you purchase an online ticket at our website, you can also get inside faster.
