The State Hermitage is among the European museums that are housed in palatial residences, like the Louvre in Paris, the Palazzo Pitti in Florence or the Vatican Palace in Rome. Today it is hard to call the Hermitage simply a museum. It is more of an immense cultural and research centre. Over almost two and a half centuries one of the world’s largest collections has been assembled here, numbering around three million works of art and artifacts of world culture from the Stone Age up to the present century.
Hermitage Memory is a game based on museum’s abundant collection of paintings. It will help you and your children to get acquainted with the famous world masterpieces, develop your memory and also spend an enjoyable time with family and friends.
The rules are quite simple. Cards with pictures are laid out on the table facedown. The players by turn open up two cards at a time so that everybody could see them. If the pictures match, the player takes them and starts a stack. He continues as long as he turns over the matching cards. If the pictures are different, the player turns them back over. And then comes another player’s turn to open up two cards. The player who gets the largest number of matching cards by the end of the game wins.
