This is probably one of the best collections of Russian art in the world. I was here 10 years ago, and revisiting this lovely gallery was one of the highlights of my trip. If you are interested in art, this museum is not to be missed.

Make sure to take the earphone set. There is a recorded tour on the set, though the woman at the desk did know about it, which allows you to go through the museum in a few hours, and see the most important things.

So much to see here. A good idea to prioritise. This gallery merits at least half a day, but I would suggest including time for a break in order to appreciate everything. Fascinating insight into Russian history.

Wonderful collection of paintings. I really enjoyed wandering through the galleries. Not as crowded as Louvre or Prado but very impressive.

This place is a wonderment. Though I studied and have loved art all my life, I never learned about Russian artists. Tretyakov was a revelation. From Shiskin's peaceful and exquisite landscapes to Vereschchagin's unforgettable war scenes, this place is a revelation. Plan to spend a few hours a day there for at least 3 days if you want to get the most out of it. NOT TO BE MISSED!
