“Chagall exhibition”
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.”
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.

“Must-see.”
Reviewed May 4, 2012

Don't forget to visit new section under glass cupola (2nd floor, in the depths; go upstairs when see new passage): there Belarusian fine art of XX century is presented. The collection is rich and varied, and it helps you to understand Belarus in all its beauty. We were there several times, and every visit left bright aftertaste.
On the 1st floor, don't miss Zhukovski's painting: he's Anton Chekhov of the canvas.

This museum does not contain really valuable paintings or other exponats. Medieval collection of Belarusian wooden art is interesting though.
