We were here for a wedding the water view was breathtaking. The gardens were very romantic and cozy for a wedding, I would go back here to visit just to do a tour.

Gardens are free and beyond awesome! Museum entry will cost you. We spent a couple of hours here and did nothing but walk the grounds and take pictures. We are taking our son and his girlfriend back today. Don't miss this freebie!

Plan to arrive early in the day to fully appreciate the grounds and the museum on the Hermitage grounds. The antique collections show eclectic tastes.

Had a very nice visit. I wish Museums would realize most of the visitors are older than 10 & need bigger signs higher up on the walls. Even so it was great! Would recommend to anyone who loves history & beautiful art pieces.
