The entrance is a bit hidden in a side street as they were doing building work when we went. The gallery is divided into many rooms both chronologically and by country so you can skip anything if it doesn't appeal. However its easy to spend several hours as there is so much to see. We found it fairly easy to... More

A must to visit when you are in Moscow. OK, you have to have a lot of time because there are so many rooms and so many extremely nice and good paintings to see. My favorite was Serov's "Girl with peaches

Although I am not so a huge fan of that kind of art, I can say that this was one of my best experiences! And the galleries I have visited in my life are not a few... And the most important thing is that everything is made from Russian artists!

You have to wait a very slow queue until you see a notice - 'entry 10 people every 30 minutes'. Patience is rewarded - amazing collection. For me the Pushkin Museum of Fine Arts is much interesting than this gallery.

Gallery feature Russian painters. English information is not that often. For additional fee you can take an audio guide. Entrance is 500 rubles. There is a very nice restaurant inside.

I have been there several times and this museum gives in quite short time (2-3 hours) good overview about russian paintings and history of art.

Sometimes Tretyakov Gallery (either the main complex, or the other section on Krymsky val 9) hosts an overpopular exhibition, that is specifically aimed at creating a stampede to promote the cult of fine art with the assistance of TV and press. These days it's Vatican Pinacotheca visiting, with one Caravaggio and two Raphaels on display. People literally kill themselves and... More

Impressive mansion. Huge collection of paintings and sculptures from Russian artists. A place to wander around and get lost in for 3-4 hours easily. Audioguides offered in different languages. Cafe on first floor serves good coffee and pastries at very reasonable prices. Highly recommended.

This is a well laid out and spacious gallery where the very extensive collection of works by Russian painters from the last two centuries, mainly in the realist style, is regularly cycled through changing displays. Many from the West, familiar with European painting of the same period, might be surprised by the range of works on display, although much is... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Zamoskvorechye
It wouldn’t be a mistake to call Pyatnitskaya street the main axis of this neighborhood – turn one direction and you’ll find the Tretyakov Gallery in Lavrushinsky Lane, turn another – a hip Scandinavian restaurant. Old churches now embrace contemporary life with style and grace. Going to Zamoskvorechye is like visiting during the times when it was a medieval Russian quarter, but with a modern twist of 20th century buildings pushing themselves into the 21st century with new businesses opening weekly. Stroll down Pyatnitskaya to taste dozens of global cuisines – from Ukrainian and Georgian to Thai and American.
