MuseumSpot > State Hermitage Museum

State Hermitage Museum, Russia

The Russian museum was first created as a private collection of Empress Catherine II and constructed next to the Winter Palace in the 18th century. You can look online at the history and changes in appearance of the Winter Palace over the centuries. The straightforward site also has a separate Digital Collection segment, in which you can browse collections based on specific categories or try the unique QBIC (Query by Image Content) Color and Layout Searches to find artwork by using the color palette or drawing your own version. Donít forget to explore the detailed Collection Highlights, as well as the Virtual Academy, which allows you to learn more about the history, culture and art of various topics ranging from biblical subjects to Ancient Egypt.
