My Hermitage

Author: Mikhail Piotrovsky
Stars: 2
Review by: Mandy Apgar

It was OK as showy oversized museum guides go. I had just seen a special discussing the Hermitage on Netflix and thought to get this but found it had none of the spark of the special. Was very dry, and considering one is dealing with a museum where practically every 10th page consists of a Rembrandt you would think they could have made it a bit more lively. It wasn't a guide per se, but more so a collection of objects in the museum and a brief history of the institution itself. Just would've been better if it was less institutionalized.
