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

Absolutely fantastic collection of Russian avant-garde art, including real masterpieces of Malevich, Lissitzky, Tatlin or Rodchenko! It is really worth a visit!

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
