5-Hour Video Shows Russia’s Hermitage Museum in Its Full Glory

The coronavirus pandemic has drastically slowed down travel these days and many people are forced to spend time in their homes. If you’re among them, you’ll be happy to know that you can still explore the world online as many museums are starting to offer online tours in the light of the new events.

One of them is Hermitage in St. Petersburg, Russia, which collaborated with Apple to get us this incredible 5-hour footage of the inside of this impressive museum.

The video takes us through 45 galleries, shows 588 works, and even includes live performances from ballet dancers and composer Kirill Richter. Apple shot it as a way to showcase the battery life and performance on their new iPhone 11. 

“This video to me is all about connection through time,” ArtNet quoted filmmaker Axinya Gog. “Art that is timeless meets modern life and state-of-the-art technology.” Gog and her team created the single-shot video during their six-hour visit to the museum. See it below.
