Just a note to visitors that the gallery changed locations recently. The address on Bolotnaya Naberezhnaya, Bldg 1 is the most current address (and the one I visited) but be mindful that some websites and travel books may still list the location in the House of Artists building which is one metro stop away. The place is well laid out, but a little small when crowded.Unfortunately rates were raised almost double for the last day of the exhibition we attended. As with most museums and galleries in Moscow, get there early to avoid the crowds. We arrived an hour after opening and had to wait in line for about 20 minutes. The bathroom facilities seemed a bit inadequate for a gallery. But there is a WC after entering the turnstile and another just before leaving though a different turnstile. I didn't see an elevator but there are a couple stairs getting in the building and then into the exhibit areas. The gift shop had some interesting finds. But the price of coffee table type books are very marked up. Using the free wifi, a book that was selling for ~$50 was found online for $10.

Well done modern photography gallery on the South side of the artistic area island. A favorite place in Moscow. Have seen a few exhibits there. Worth a visit!

Lumiere Brothers Center of Photography is a must-see for photography lovers. Exhibitions are usually quite large and very interesting here, so I usually stay for 2-3 hours.
There is also a small library there, containing art books and books on photography, that you can borrow.
Anyway, it's a really nice place and a perfect choice for a romantic date :)

The Center is situated not far from Kropotkinskaya metro station, on the "island" of the Red October, just near the ugly monument to Peter I.
