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!

I hopped off the 24 hour Hop On-Hop Off bus when the English audio mentioned Chagall, Kandinsky, and one other Constructivist (don't remember whether it was El Lissitzky, Tatlin, or Malevich). I was so excited, and my time was limited. I nearly ran there, checked my back pack, bought a ticket, used the loo, and then DISCOVERED that the 20th... More

Its a beautiful space in the center of Moscow full of classical Russian artists. Plan to be there for a few hours but you will definitely have time for other sights.

Here is a wonderful collection of paintings by Russian artists. For me, this museum was a wonderful discovery, as I was not familiar with Russian painters. We toured through the museum with a guide and were treated with a history lesson, while enjoying beautiful paintings.

If you like portrait paintings then this is a place to go. Some of the paintings were like photographs. Mainly Russian artists.

Seemingly small scale building houses an enormous collection, impressive amount of portraits, battle scenes, landscapes, water scenes, Russian life. Art through the ages - a history of Russia over a stretch of time. Highly recommend spending a few hours here. Highly recommend the audio tour - terrific insights into artists' approach, history, culture, social context. Notice the architecture on pedestrian... More
