If you travel to Minsk in May you will have an opportunity to participate in the interactive program dedicated to the Night... More

It may be the Museum of National Art. It could just as well be the museum of missing art or left overs. There is no real story told in this museum. Too many pieces and they don't fit together. Everything is scattered in a very nice building. And most of the time there is an explanation in English. However, that... More

In a city where few museums are large or have signs in English, this is one of the exceptions. The art ranges from the contemporary (mind bogglingly bad in my opinion) to the medieval (interestingly armless statues and religious paintings) with everything in between and a scattering of work from other parts of the world. I found the Stalin-era paintings... More

A huge range of periods and styles - mostly paintings but some sculpture. Well presented and inexpensive entry fee. Sadly the shop would not sell me any post cards or books due to the introduction of their new currency notes. So nothing to take away but fading memories. Don't miss this gallery. No cafe - another lost opportunity.

There are several reasons why I like this museum a lot: - Quality of paintings is top - Exhibition rooms are not overfilled with paintings and mainly in the upper floors there is a lot of light due to the interesting architecture of the building. - We were there on a Saturday and still the museum was not overcrowded. There... More

Right now, the Goya and Picassos and much of the European pieces are not on display. There is a marvelous lovely "new section" as well designed and curated as any we have seen in the world and we've seen a lot. Modern statues, bright elegant new artists as well as more traditional Belarusian art. Fortunately, very little of the traditional... More
