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.
