The gallery is set in a beautifully renovated building...I was just as impressed with the building as I was the gallery. There was a mix of historical portraits and modern art so a bit of a history lesson on Belarus as well as an art gallery. Limited information in English but you go for the art rather than who created... More

Good exhibition on the second world war and on British artists when I visited, both in the annexe at the rear. Nothing hear stopping but best in Belarus I think.

I like the museum because of the building where it stays. It is always interesting to come back there. The new events are not held so often there, but there is a good exhiition of russian art.

I visited the museum more than once. You can easily spend a whole day admiring the variety of paintings, sculptures, furniture, and all kinds of art. Must see. Check schedule for different exhibitions.

Open 11 until 7pm, closed Tuesdays, current cost BYR 50000. Leave bags downstairs in the cloakroom where you will also find the toilets but not Western style. There is a cafe and a shop selling postcards, books etc. As I discovered after my visit the shop also has available an audio guide in languages including English. The guide might have... More

The last Wednesday of the month is free day so we go often and do a wing at a time so it is more enjoyable. The new addition in the back gives the old building a modern interior.

The museum is free on Wednesdays, which is good in one way but does mean that there are an increased number of schoolchildren on the premises, all of them very well behaved, I am sure the case would be same in London! There are exhibitions of Belorussian paintings and also portraits of past Grand dukes and their families, a lot... More

International level art museum, particularly rich in 19th century landscapes. Plenty of modern art because of the connection with Marc Chagall. The heroic revolutionary art about the Great Patriotic War was particularly moving, especially the evocative pictures of Minsk, devastated by bombardment.

I went in to escape from a storm, and was glad I did. The old section is a bit gloomy, though there are some nice paintings. The new section is great, flooded with light and showing contemporary Belarusian art. There is a small section with Eastern artifacts, eg Japanese kimonos, Korean and Chinese boxes. When I visited there was also... More
