Good Place to visit

Museum holds some excellent paintings especially old Russian style. But do not go with too much of expectations otherwise it would be disappointing experience. Good for 1 visit.

The old art in the main building didn't really do it for me ... there aren't any western masters. I really liked some of the modern art - one of the exhibitions almost felt like 3D, the artist was so generous with the oils! The extension really is a stunning building in its own right - worth the entrance fee... More

Surprised that we chose a day that offered free entry but it was refreshing to be able to get right up to the painting to see the brush strokes. Seemed to go on for ever, well worth the visit.

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.
