Some really spectacular pieces of art on display. Went with a guide, and that really helped to place everything and explain the exhibits.

Check the programme of this Gallery when you're in Moscow. Sometimes they have great exhibitions. Even if the 19th, 20th century Russian art is not familiar to you, it can blow you away!

This gallery is placed on the banks of the Moscow river and right across of Gorky Park. It is a huge 1960's style building which is in my opinion worth seeing. There is cloakroom, restrooms, small shop and cafeteria on the 1st floor. Their 3 floors contain huge collection of Russian modern art (19-20th century). You can also see Russian... More

Oh my! For the lover of art history or one who enjoys seeing the development of techniques over recent transitions in history, this is the place. Well curated, great special exhibits, beautiful location, manageable size- really great stuff. Sad to say that despite the beautiful structure, it appears to be not as well maintained as it could be. I loved... More

We visited this huge museum of Russian modern art on an afternoon especially to see the Golovin works. I call him the painter of roses as most of his works contain roses even on his very manly looking senoritas. We also saw some bizarre b&w work by Prigov. But the costumes and stage sets for the Bolshoi operas by Fedorovsky... More

This gallery is in a 1960's/70's style building on the banks of the Moscow river. There were three floors, no escalators or lifts that we could see but hey the walks good for you. The displays we enjoyed the most were the Soviet propaganda style displays and the revolutionary art. Go early, we missed a gallery as the place was... More

It was very tiring going from room to room in this very large building. Recommended only for those interested in MODERN Russian art. A few of the paintings are by fmous painters but the museum is too big

A fabulous collection of Russian art in my favorite Moscow neighborhood. I've been there twice--once with a guide and once on my own, and it is enjoyable either way.

Apart from the serious gallery, it's a big and well-respected exhibition hall, so there can be pretty awesome ones!

Some of the reviews below seem to be confusing this Tretyakov gallery with the other one that's on Lavrushinsky Lane closer to the Kremlin. This one has only 20th century art, the other one has the icons and 19th century Russian paintings. The colllection of 20th century Russian art here is great, including Russian constructivists, which is my favorite part:... More
