This gallery is obviously must be visited for everyone who comes to Moscow. This will help you to learn better the Russian culture and Russian people in general.

Simply an excellent collection of Russian art; mostly pre-1900. The collection is very extensive so be prepared to spend several hours there. There is little written explanation, so going with somebody who can explain the artwork adds a lot to the experience.

I have visited many museums all around the world and this is a unique piece. You may see the history of Russian Art from 11th century to modern day. As a fan of Ivan Aivazovsky, I have enjoyed this visit! Masterpieces all around. A must see for Russian Art enthusiasts! The entrance fee is acceptable for a museum of this... More

Most Americans have no hint of the richness of the Russian art tradition. This gallery covers Russian art from 13th century icons through the the end of the 19th century/early 20th century (for more 20th century go to the new Tretyakov gallery by Gorky Park)

The building, the paintings very impressive Russian style. Very crowded display. The main point should be focusing in some works and go on. Don't try to see everything, it is too much

The gallery itself is a wonderful space. It is in a great location - very convenient to the Hotel Baltschug Kempinski. Some amazing pictures. Very interesting to get to know a little history of Russian art.

This should be a part of any visit to Moscow. The museum itself is in a great location in a magnificent building and the works are beautifully displayed. The range of russian art on display is extensive. The art itself rivals any on display in any gallery in Europe.

This museum is a treasure of Russian fine art, much of which has been hidden from Western eyes for too long. My absolute favorites were the late 19th century artists. Some, like Ilya Repin and Ivan Shishkin are becoming better known in the US, but I was enthralled with the body of work from these artists that we don't see:... More
