Here, I found not just a couple of paintings by artists such as Renoir, Picasso, Cezanne, etc., but a room dedicated to each of these European Impressionist artists. Because there were very few visitors during my visit, I was able to enjoy this amazing collection in peace. The main museum to the left and the Pushkin Museum require separate fees.

The Museum's stunning 19th & 20th century art collection is housed in a separate building to the left of the main museum. It opens at 11.00, cost 300 rbls and on the morning we visited was quiet. Spread over three floors chronologically, you can head up to the top first and with a bit of luck should be able to... More

As my main interest in Art is the European Impressionist artists, I thoroughly enjoyed the European Collection. As this is a separate ticket to the main Museum, I chose to visit only this exhibition. I enjoyed works of Art by Renior, Monet, Manet, Degas, Van Gough, Cezanne and many more..Loved it!

This is a review of the 19C and 20C European and American Art section of the Pushkin State Museum at 14 Volkhonka St., which is separate from the main part of the Museum next door and which charges a separate admission fee, currently 300 rubles for an adult. This gallery, which used to be a wing of the main Museum,... More

With quite a lot of replicas, no wonder there isn't much people there. The staff there can't communicate at all.

This was one of the top recommended museums in my first trip to Moscow, so I was excited about visiting it. Unfortunately the long lines were tiring, and the collection disposal was confusing, as it seemed they missed criteria (chronology? similarity? geography?). The amount of plaster casts, although curious, was a bit of a turn-off. But I could see 2... More

Rembrant was one of the great masters -he paints old people like no other painter -The " Portrait of an old woman" is magnificent. Dutch & Flemish art is well represented by Breughel, Van Dyck & Rubens. A great collection of still lifes by Frans Snyders -not only are the paintings large but it is the most I have seen... More

Yes, there are some paintings of the great masters like Rembrandt. All the rest is fake. Tons of plaster casts including some of the greatest masterpieces of the world. Probably is useful to teach the Russian children about art, but you don't go to St. petersburg to see replicas of Michelangelo's David of Venus of Milo and this is what... More

THIS IS THE BEST KEPT SECRET IN MOSCOW! We visited the Pushkin Museum in February 2013, so not really peak tourist season. This meant we had almost the entire museum to ourselves. I mean it, maybe 10 people in total. There is a very impressive display of some impressionist pieces. I got to sit in a room alone with Renior,... More
