This is an outstanding art museum that contains over 130,000 Russian works of art from the 11th to 20th century. The art was donated by Russian, Pavel Tretyakov. Allow several hours while here.

Absolutely beautiful! Though Russian painters are unfortunately less famous than Russian writers and/or composers, the Tretyakov Gallery proves that nevertheless they were equally talented. A massive collection of discoveries (incl. icons hall and treasury rooms). The rich Russian history is unfolding in front of your eyes. There will be an opportunity to rent an audio guide or to check A4... More

Treated as a MUST see.. If you take a tour along with history context maybe it will be more interesting. Without it - not so interesting.

The Russian artwork is absolutely amazing but be prepared to spend hours as you become immersed in the volume of art available to see. We were there in July and it was a bit hot and humid in the gallery so a hand fan would be recommended if you get hot easy.

This museum holds very old art pieces, and there are a4 sized pamphlets/brochures in each 'room' that describe the characters in the paintings, which makes it all the more interesting. This is a great place to come and see live the works of some famous Russian painters.

For people who are interested in Russian art until the 19th Century. For art of the Russian avant-garde and Social Realism you should to go the TRETYAKOV GALLERY AT KRYMSKY VAL, which is the modern part of Tretyakov. It is across the street from the Garage, a nicely designed center for contemporary art, in the Gorky Park.

Especially liked the late 19th and early 20th century Russian painters. Less interested in the icons. Well laid out.

There is much more to Russian art than icons and Stalinist art. Much terrific painting particularly from 19th and early 20th century. Good collection at the Tretyakov, and the Russian museum in St. Petersburg. A must see for art lovers.

I really loved my first visit to the gallery! I totally agree with all other reviewers! One word of warning for people who don't speak Russian - try to have a translator to enter the museum. The process of buying the tickets and renting the audio equipment was complicated and the personnel does not speak English at all!
