“classical art”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2013

The place is extremely beautiful, it's my favorite museum in Minsk. As it's situated in center of Minsk in 5 minutes walk from underground station it is easy to get there, the entering price is pretty cheap, about 4€ for adults, 5€ for those who want to take photos; every last Wednesday of a month the entrance is free. Speaking about exhibition: one can hardly find some modern art there, but classics lovers, I'm sure, will enjoy the museum, there are ancient Belorussian art ex., Belorussian art XIXc. and XXc. ex., Russian art XVIII - XXc. ex., European art XVI- XXc. ex. and Asian art XIV-XXc. The museum also hosts diverse moving exhibitions.

“Chagall exhibition”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 24, 2012

I have to disagree with most of the reviewers
Marc Chagall: Life and Love Exhibition

The exhibition of works dedicated to the 125th anniversary one of the major 20th-century painters Marc Chagall in the National Art Museum of Belarus from the collections of the Museum of Israel is simply breath taking The exhibition features 89 works from different periods (1910-1961) representing the multifaceted art of the artist: gouaches, portraits, genre compositions, book illustration for the Fables by de la Fontaine , Dead Souls by Gogol and the Bible, The life, traditions ,suffering and the genocide of the Jewish People plays an important in the exposed dramatized works by Chagall. I left the exhibition with strong, overwhelming emotional feelings
This museum is a highlight to your visit to Minsk

“A cool clear insight into contemporary Belarus.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2012

A little shabby at times it feels like a museum of 2 halves. there is an old dated start to this museum, a feeling of something a little outside of time and relevance but comes into its own once you move into the modern extension. I found it a really intereseting insight into both historical and contemporary Belarus.
