If you’re willing to discover Russian art, GO THERE. This museum has incredible artworks, among which Nesterov, Surikov, Vrubel... I was flabbergasted by the quality of the paintings exhibited there. The museum is calm, very central, and most of all interesting

We went in January and the temp went down to -19. However that didn’t stop us walking around the grounds of this grandiose museum. The gardens were 1 of our favourite parts of the holiday.

This museum exhibits only Russian art and my interest was focused on the paintings of the second half of the 19th century, especially Repin and Vereschagin. As I walked along and looked at the dark colors and the sad motifs, it became clear to me...More

Too much to see. Changed my impression of Russia. Very crowded. Better go with a small group tour to see the highlights.

Very large museum with amazing collection of Russian art. You can easily spend whole afternoon here. Go for the audioguide it's quite good. Enjoy the picture Russian Cossacks write response to the Sultan. It's one of my favourites.

The visit left big impact on me and broadened my knowledge of Russia in general and its history. It is a good rainy day activity good if they could introduce easier methods of buying the entrance tickets more conveniently.

I enjoyed this so much more than the Hermitage. When we went, as far as I could see there was no tour group. We could explore unhurriedly and take as long as we wished to admire the exhibits. There is quite a variety of art...More
