The outside yard which is free to visit is perhaps more interesting than the inside which has an entrance fee of 350 rubles. Once you get inside you will wander around and wonder where the art is... With the exception of few great and good...More

At the mentioned place, changing and well selected expositions of young artists are to be seen. As a rule, there are some general recollections of the tendencies of art worldwide. The graphical works typically are peculiar and of high quality.
