If you care at all to know Russia, its history, its soul, its life, there is no better place. They sell a radio guide in English. If you go to this museum without that guide or some other, you will waste your time. Even with the guide it is quite difficult to catch a string of history. I would definitely... More

This is worth a visit. Although it is not too big, there are many interesting art works that are pretty impressive. Probably it is not the peak period, we enjoy our morning going through various halls and art works.

If you like fine art, specially in painting you must have 1-2 days to enjoy! So many famous images need you to taste. I only arrange have day, that absolutely too short to enjoy deeply.

I saw great paintings and ceramics by Russian artists not so well known in the U.S. The Gallery is in a beautiful area of Moscow with lots of recently restored 18th and 19th century buildings, restaurants and pedestrian only areas. Well worth visiting.

There are at least two reasons to visit this Gallery: firstly, nowhere else will you be able to see such a comprehensive collection of Russian Art. Secondly, the area around the Gallery is one of the most congenial in all of Moscow and a delight to walk around. The building itself is very unusual, with some Oriental touches, but it... More

Totally amazing collection of Russian art and artists. Too much for one day. We used the audio guides and had a very reasonably priced lunch on the premises. We were tempted by the gift shop as well.

A must for Moscow visitors. Russian artists only - from 13th century to the 19-20th border (Serov and Vrubel included, Malevich and Chagall -not)

We enjoyed this gallery very much. The size of the collection is amazing. We had a tour which was really helpful. It was good to enjoy the art without throngs of tourists there, even though it was in July. For those who enjoy art, it is a must.

I preferred this gallery to the Hermitage in St Petersburg. Call me crazy if you like. Smaller but as much interesting art to see, especially with a good guide
