We had chance to only see one part of museum with the old European Art from back of 17 cent-ry. What a great place. Well kept, clean and well watched by art watchers ladies.Everything was under control and well air conditioned.Next time I am planning to see second part of museum.Hightly reccomend after Tretyakov Gallery. Beautiful Russia, motherland!

We only viewed the impressionist art. Outstanding collection of 19th and 20th century European art. Many rooms dedicated to sole artists. Nicely presented and not too crowded

The museum can enjoy the reputation of the best Greek, Roman, Medieval and Italian Renaissance sculptures - awesome! Moving from one hall to another will keep you speechless! Great collection of Renaissance, Dutch and French art of XVII - XVIII. To put things into perspective, it looks more like a combination of British Museum and National Gallery in one building,...

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
