Works of famouse artists Goya and Picasso from Madrid! 95 pictures. And really nice design of the art space. Worth to visit for those who like art. The exhobition work till the end of March. The museum is big and spacy. So at least 2 hours to look around.

We went there for the 1st time on our 2nd visit to Minsk. It is a very nice building from the outside, but even nicer on the inside, especially their new modern wing. You get a real idea of life as it was and is transforming into in Belarus by viewing the selection of works on display in the museum.... More

One of those places you should definitely visit if you want to know Minsk closer. Exposition is very rich and sometimes rather interesting thematic exhibitions of artists of different epochs take place, so there are permanent and temporary zones and visiting the museum is never boring. More than twenty seven thousand works of art – plus twenty miscellaneous collections and... More

On our second attempt at trying to gain entry to this place we managed to get in. Staff were incredibly rude and unhelpful. The ticket lady seemed to be shouting at us for no apparent reason. Pretty building and a nice collection.

I was a little surprised that people were touching some of the artwork. The suits of armor from the 13th century were of particular interest to me. As were some of the weaponry. Belarus has had a lot of there best artwork looted during the past World Wars. Yet this museum has been able to recover a lot of it.... More

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.
