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

The amount of artwork on display is incredible, well worth the entrance fee. The gallery is spacious and well ordered, easily able to wander around at our leisure taking time... More

Tretyakov gallery is the most famous art museum in Moscow. They have a collection of masterpieces of Russian artists, such as Repin, Shishkin, Serov, Vasnetsov and many more. The famous "Ivan the terrible kills his son" is a must see! Plan on spending a day there!

This gallery was established to display art by Russian artists and as such you get exposure to a group of artists you would not see much in the west. Definitely one of the two must see galleries in Russia ( The other being the Hermitage in Saint Petersburg) The art also has a Russian cultural perspective with snow , mud.... More

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!
