Excellent collection, good audio guide. Very good toilets, rarity in a Russian museum. Audioguide starts with Bysantine art and icons which are in a slightly different place to the "start of tour". We had a traveller with limited mobility with us and going up and down the stairs twice was not appreciated. Elderly ladies in all rooms are slightly hit... More

If you are an art lover you have to visit this place. The paintings that are displayed there are indeed amazing. At the counter they request you to remove your jackets and umbrellas which are returned to you when you leave. Please take a guide with you who can explain all the minute details of all the paintings. There are... More

This gallery had all the features of a huge state museum, packed into a perfect size facility. We saw masters, travelling exhibits and history rarely seen outside Russia. This should be the top museum on your list.

Well worth an afternoon, especially if the weather is bad. Pick up a guide to highlight the major pieces so you don't wander aimlessly. A must-see is Repin's Ivan the Terrible that depicts him holding his son, who he's just accidentally killed. The eyes are so expressive!

This is one of the largest galleries in Russia and it's a must see for everyone who visits Moscow. The gallery is very large so allow several hours to walk around and you probably still won't be able to see everything.

You won't regard to see this gallery. From the pieces you not only see the arts,but the life,culture and history of Russia. Saw someone's comment this gallery against Hermitage at St Petersburg,which I think it is an unfair comparison as this museum is focus on Russian arts. Hey ,come on,if you want to see the world-wide arts you should visit... More

Really interesting collection of Art. Some of the paintings are truly breathtaking. Also, the layout of the gallery is great and you can see everything with minimum backtracking.

Nothing here that is really "art"--just lots and lots of portraits of famous Russians. If you want to study history, this is your place...but as an ART museum, it is a disappointment.

After visiting this museum I realized how unaware of russian art I am - as most of the people I know, given that we usually learn and tend to be more curious about western european or american art. Treatyakov Gallery is home to a splendid collection of paintings, sculptures, mosaics, drawings and prints from the most important national artists, and... More

This gallery is huge and you need a full day to see the main works. The audioguide is fairly comprehensive, with nice information on Russian art and history. Was definitely worth the visit. And it wasn't crowded, tho we visited it during summer.
