I must admit, although I saw a few other things, I came for the ikons, and was not disappointed. Even if you really don't care so much for Russian art, but would like to see some of the best ikons ever, this is the place. Don't miss Rublev's "Trinity". This one painting was so beautiful I could hardly walk away.... More

Huge place, much to see and of exceptional quality. Well organised. Beautiful building in its own right. Audio guides available and cafe downstairs. Restaurant immediately outside with menu in English. A definite must-see.

Not the biggest but apparently the best collection in Moscow. I had a tour guide who really helped connect dots for me about the works. It's a must see gallery.

I was disappointed. Sorry. It was not very clearly signed and therefore confusing to visit. Angry women did not help much...

An important gallery worldwide and a "must visit" while in Moscow. Plenty of historic and famous paintings inside offer an insight of Russian history and a better understanding of the country's cultural layers. Take audio guides and make sure you have at least a few hours available as every object has a lot to offer and this is a large... More

We went to visit Treyakov Gallery in our last visit to Russia. It houses all the Russian masters and their paintings. It was part of the private collection started by Tretyakov. This is a must visit gallery. I really did not have much knowledge of Russian painters, it was really wonderful and interesting to see the beautiful paintings and have... More

As lovers of the visual and performing arts who have travelled the world, my husband and I found this gallery a very pleasurable experience. Not only is there a memorable collection of artworks by famous Russian and international artists but also the presentation has considerable theatrical flair. The staff in the galleries were knowledgeable: one even knew the exact location... More

Amazing experience with over 130 000 displays. Had a great time. II suggest to purchase a book or to get a audio guide on the entrance as it helps you a lot and provides a lot of information
