The smaller gallery to the left with the permanent collection is wonderful. Degas, Van Gogh, Monet, Pissaro etc I try and visit here 1-2 a year to get some energy. Never that busy as most people visit the main gallery (which is worth a visit also), but you must go here if you enjoy art!

We only visited the Main Museum, which cost 300R. We took the audio-guide tour but only covered the ground floor and a couple of highlights in the upper floors. The collection is set across two floors. The Museum has a varied collection spanning sculpture (though much is casts of originals) paintings and artifacts. Of particular note for me where the...

Hmmm...something familiar here and I couldn't put my finger on it right away. The larger than life David statue is the first clue. Walk through the sculpture gallery on the second floor of the main building and it hits you - if you've been to Italy, you've already seen everything here down to the replica of Ghiberti's Gates of Paradise....

We concentrated on the impressionists and were 'impressed' (ha ha) with the curation. The room guards are a bit harsh, but generally you can get a lot closer to important pieces here than in most comparable galleries. But it is only half the story. Most visitors to Moscow are likely to also get to St Petersburg and the Hermitage. If... More

This museum is very well setup for foreigners. While many of the pieces have some English captioning, the complete translations are not written down. However, the is a very large amount of translated information on the audio guide. It really makes a trip to this museum very easy for non-Russian speakers.

you do get to see ( at the annex) a lot of very good impressionist painting, including some excellent Gauguin paintings from Tahiti and many okay Matisse, some excellent Sisleys (before he went into Pontilism), Pissaros, Corots and others. I cannot remember if there are Renoirs or not. However, some of the collection from the hermitage is here. The main... More

You must visit the Museum if you want to see things you may never will in other places. Unknown Russian artist do deserve to be honoured, they did contribute to civilisation as much as many of the westerners.
