It's a small, but decent place with the unique collection of wooden sculptures of Christ. Some pieces of art are really great. Recommend

Housed in an old cathedral, this gallery is quite remarkable. There is a good spread of Russian and non-Russian art across the centuries but the real treat are the wooden sculptures on the top floor. The remains of the cathedral structure inside the gallery are also interesting.

It is an amazing art gallery with plenty of interesting pieces. There are very few famous names but there are two things that make it worth the visit the first one being the building and the second one - the collection of wooden sculpture. The building is that of a former cathedral and it is very peculiar. It doesn't look like a Russian church at all and the place where it is located (on the bank of the Kama river) is just spectacular.
The collection of wooden sculpture, so called "Perm Gods" is truly unique. There are a number of naive sculptures carved by local pagan population (the Komi) who used to live in this region long before the Russians arrived.
I enjoyed the visit because this gallery is not larger than life - you can see pretty much everything in 2 hours. You should certainly go there if you visit Perm.

Varied collection of Russian and western European paintings and sculptures, unique collection of "wooden gods" ....All this is, sadly, undermined by the continuously unsettled case with the local Russian orthodox church, the original owner of the building who wants to reclaim it and the local authorities who acnowledge this right but are very slow in providing an alternative suitable building for the gallery
