Just art of the 20th century, a lot of it run-of-the-mill Soviet art from the 30s on. But here is where you see Moscow's Malevitchs and his colleagues and competitors. Definitely worth a trip, but it is hard to get to without a taxi. There is a bus.

This is a fabulous collection of artworks by artists with whom we are totally unfamiliar in the West. We were stunned by the amazing work from artists we had never heard of. I was particularly taken with the numerous works depicting significant historical events. These were huge and dramatic.

Absolutely beautiful limited run exhibit. Please book tickets in advance as they have a huge line out front booking tickets for 2 weeks later. This amazing artist was in the Russian navy in the 1800's and has painted some of the most profound nautical scenes ever seen. It's worth going just to see "The Ninth Wave".

It is complicated to get in. You have to queue to get into building, make your way downstairs, get tickets, then leave your coats, bags (except handbags) and get a ticket for this, before making your way up to gallery. The volunteers are everywhere and extremely helpful. They are clearly art devotees, but few speak english so have the name... More

The Tretyakov Gallery currently has at least two locations, and a third is being constructed. This review is for the site housing the collection from roughly the early 20th Century up to the present known as the Tretyakov Gallery on Krymsky Val (which is about a mile away from the original site. This Tretyakov sits along the Moscow River about... More

If you want to go deep into the Russian Arts and History, you'll discover different movements who reinterpreted the European painters. The paintings about the casualties and stupidity of wars, the scenes of daylife routines in the countryside and feasts in Russia are not to be missed. Highly recommanded. Located in a nice quarter.

This is very nearly a unique museum in Western art; you'll want to see the 20th century collection in the Russisn Museum in Petersburg to round out your viewing. Extremely interesting collection of socialist realist art from the Soviet period, as well as some impressive pre-soviet futurist and constructivist pieces from the early years of the century. This is exciting... More

We went to this after visiting the other Tretyakov Gallery. It has an interesting collection of early paintings by Marc Chagall and the painting are more modern in general. It's not as large/expansive as the other gallery (many of the rooms were closed) but it's not a small collection by any stretch of the imagination. Worth going to if you're... More

Staying in Yakimanka

Neighborhood Profile
Yakimanka acts as Moscow’s evergreen lungs with prime beaches on the Moscow river. All the benefits of visiting and living in Yakimanka are gathered at the Moscow river embankment – three parks: Gorky, Muzeon and Neskuchny garden shape this green stripe with museums showing the hippest contemporary art. The area is full of activities for your eyes (museums), mouth (restaurants) and feet (sport and dance-wise). Access anywhere is easy, just hop on a river boat and continue your journey throughout the city.
