Was an ok-museum. Lady at the coat check was extremely rude to my Russian friends, but that only ruined the first 10 minutes of the visit! If you have a few extra hours in Moscow, I'd suggest a visit, but in my opinion it's not a "must see" in Moscow if you have limited time.

It is quite educating but if you are looking for the great original stuff visit neighboring branch of it. It is called the Private Collections department. You can find the fantastic collections there, especially impressionists

This museum is much more modest than Louvre or Met but it hosts a lot of wonderful pieces of art. The best collections are Ancient Egyptian, Dutch painting (including 6 works by Rembrandt), impresionists and post-impressionists. Many other collections are also good, while temporary exhibitions are most often excellent. The museum is really worth visiting if you have a spare... More

The museum is nicer to visit for the home which is hosting it, than for the content, which is very specialistic on the era and the items relevant to Pushkin life. Moreover, even if there are some useful English explanations, most of the documents displayed are in Russian.

This was my favorite museum in Moscow. If your interest is in impressionist and post impressionist painting, it is a gem, not as well known for these collections as the Hermitage but really equal in this area. Of note, these collections are in a separate building next to the main museum, with a separate entry fee. In retrospect I would... More

The attraction of this museum for me is its temporary exhibitions. There was an outstanding Solzhenitsyn exhibit on display early this year. The rest of the museum is interesting with an impressive collection of European paintings. But most of the sculpture collection consists of plaster casts of famous works.

Well laid out with audio guide available. Nice selection of Impressionist and more Modern artists. Within walking distance of Red Square, and almost across the street from Catherdral where alot of Czars and royals are entombed.
