I happened to visit this almost by accident - was sitting on a bench in the park across and just wanted to know where people kept entering. The gallery is fine, nice enough building, very warm probably counter productive for old paintings. There is no...More

Some wonderful art: icons, paintings by Repin, porcelains. All that in an 18th century mansion with beautiful baroque ceilings. The heat in June was intense despite a few open windows and a couple of sluggish A/C units. All this left us vaguely nauseous and tired....More

We had an hour before our train and popped in. For the size of the building, which itself has some interesting rooms, the collection upstairs provided a high quality viewing experience.

The exposition features Russian art starting with old icons, portraits of sovereigns, beautiful landscapes and even some porcelain (i was amused to see some soviet propaganda dishes). However, the permanent collection, located upstairs isn't too exhaustive and can be seen in about an hour or...More
