Hermitage

Art that was stolen by, or hidden from, the Nazis during World War II is now on display at the State Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg, Russia according this this article from Art Knowledge News.

The article also tells a little about the museum and its enormous collection, "Its collection is so large that it would take years to view it in its entirety--at last count, there were nearly three million works on exhibit." Wow!

You can get some idea of the scope of the collection by viewing an remarkable film that we have in our collection, Russian Ark [DVD RUS].
