I visited the Ermitage museum. It had/has more than 1000 halls and rooms filed with different Russian art works. ( I'm talking about the past, but I don't know whether I should use ''has'' or ''had"?
Thank you for taking the time to respond me.
With "the Ermitage museum", I would say "has" especially if you know that the museum is still there. I would use "had" if a) it no longer exists or b) it no longer has 1000 halls and rooms full of art.
