The gallery is very nice. on Thursday evening it is open until 2100 and the last entrance is at 2000. The signs from the Metro might lead int he wrong direction. once you find it you are glad. it is quite big, so you better plan a lot of time or chose what you want to see.

An extensive collection of Russian art from many periods. The building is beautiful. I'd rather have some more items from the last century to depict the Communist era, in order to evaluate it's artistic value objectively and also in relation to the rest of the pictures.

Tretyakov Gallery is a "not miss art museum", not only in Moscow, but in whole Russia and far more in Europe. If you forget about names, and focus on art, you will discover parts of Russian history and culture that you couldn't imagine. The price of the ticket is very cheap, 450 R per adult, and children up to 18... More

Must see at any opportunity, but plan your day ahead. Check local school holidays, etc to avoid long lines. Perfect to get a glimpse of a misterious Russian soul.

Russian artists'names, however prominent, might not be familiar to you. Some of their works are great, some are average, but all of them give you a unique chance to actually visualize Russian historic and contemporary setting: important events, social drama, personalities, traditions, interiors and landscapes, etc, done with true love and devotion. It is definitely a must even you are... More

Many tourists will go to the Pushkin Museum but in fact the Pushkin has western art whereas the Tretyakov is the best representation of Russian art over the last centuries.

Visited with family from Moscow. Lovely gallery. Very misleading from outside. Had a lovely time. The art is wow. If you like looking around art galleries. Visit this one. Hopefully you will enjoy it.

Great museum with very nice paintings of the collector Tretjakovsky. However I am not a big fan of portraits there are enough other very interesting paintings to see. Take you time to see the museum and I recommend to take the audio tour with you. You will learn about the stories behind paintings.

The collection is mostly devoted to Russian artists, with a few international pieces. Fascinating collection, housed in a beautiful building. We had the luxury of a guided tour, being shown the more famous and/or the most interesting pieces. My particular Favourite is "Portrait of an Unknown Woman", Ivan Kramskoi 1883. Give yourself at least half a day to enjoy the... More
