Only 116 minutes... If it were 116 hours, it would still not be enough, for a museum that has nearly 3 million items in its inventory. I'd like to know if this is on blu-ray. Conventional DVD is OLD. Now, musically, there's only one complaint; but, it is a serious one. When the orchestra is shown up close, the recorded sound is dry as fossil bone. However, it has ambience when we view the art. Strange... Make no mistake: classical music needs ambience (i.e. reverberation, echo-factor, atmosphere) - every single work! The narration style doesn't bother me at all since I am schooled in art history, history, archaeology and musicology.

Exceptional video tour of the buildings and art collection that make up the Hermitage in St. Petersburg; a proverbial visual feast that whets the appetite for a visit to the city.
