We spent a lovely afternoon here with my wife's 'friend' Maxine and her husband. Lots of amazing exhibits although Maxine was disappointed to discover that it didn't contain anything to do with Kenny Dalglish's hair! Would definitely recommend

There are lots of restaurants and cafes at a walking distance from the gallery in Komsomolsky prospect and Sovetskaya Street with an avarage bill from 350 (for example, Shokoladnitsa) to 1500 rub (La Bottega).
