Unfortunately art and art history isn’t my forte, but I still thoroughly enjoyed wandering the endless halls of the Hermitage. Many guided tours only allow 2 or 3 hours, but I’d suggest dedicating a day or even more as there’s so much to see. Hopefully a few of these will inspire you to visit:

Since leaving London in 2006 I’ve travelled, worked, volunteered and lived in over 90 countries. Highlights so far would be driving along the Silk Road from Beijing to Istanbul, a complete circuit of South America and volunteering with Habitat for Humanity in Costa Rica. I’m currently back in Beijing, as a base to visit more of Asia and attempt to learn Mandarin.
