Fascinating museum. Great Russian collection that provides a great perspective on the soviet system. Right next to Gorky park and is in a beautiful sculpture garden itself with some historically significant sculptures. Nice walk from the Pushkin museum over the river.

Unlike the most famous building in Lavrushinsky Street, this place is for modern art. And luckily not everything here is Soviet-style. The collection is really good and there are different trends here, one of which you would probably enjoy. Kandinsky, Malevich and some other famous artists can be found in this collection.

This is my favorite gallery what placed in a perfect place near Gorky Park. If you are traveling in Russia first you need to go to both Tretyakov Galleries, because they are the best in showing Russian Art.

Apart from throwing open for free on City Day, the biggest collection in town satisfies in terms of genuine enlightenment. Pictures of religious connotation, Biblical themes are given clear priority these days by the place's keepers, but clever visitor shall discover much more wholesome and gratifying works by virtually obscure names - and those carry unmistakable warmth of quieter and...

This was one of our favorite museums we visited on our trip to Moscow and St. Petersburg (granted we had a fair amount of background knowledge in Soviet art). This museum has an impressive collection of avant grade Russian art from the late 19th-early 20th century with Kandinsky, Malevich, and Goncherova. After seeing this early experimental era, you are led... More

Huge exposition of suprematism and russian realism art. There is a famous Black Square of Malevich, a lot of Kandinsky's works, Marc Chagall and almost NO people!

The Big Gallery of Russian modern painting 20th century and contemporary) is obviously interesting as Russian painting was isolated from the West for a century and IT is interesting to see what happens there for these years. However I am not the admirer of soc-realist artefacts which I know from my childhood so IT was not that interesting except the... More

The new Tretyakov gallery is close to Gorky Park. It's surrounded by a sculpture park, full of monuments to prominent and less prominent communist figures, presumably moved from their original location. The permanent displays contain works by the major Russian artists of the 19th and 20th centuries, many of whom are not well-known in the West (Petrov Vodkin, Repin, Natalya... More
