My exposure to lots of Russian art (more than the few selections you may find in your local art museum) sadly only existed in two places I’ve visited: Stateside was the Russian art museum in an old church in Minneapolis. The other was this one in Moscow. They both have displays of Russian painters as well religious icons to appreciate.
The Tretyakov Gallery has 2 levels and I recommend grabbing a free map near the ticketing area to help guide your walking as some of the rooms don’t flow as intuitively walking from one era (not misspelled) to the next.
The Minneapolis is 3 levels and easier to navigate as it is much much smaller. Minneapolis also has a Matroishka exhibit in their basement worth seeing (see my separate review of that galley on TA if you want to read more).

This review isn’t for those that love Russian art as you’ll visit this museum regardless of reviews. However if you appreciate art in general but aren’t familiar with Russian art then you must visit the Tretyakov museum to broaden your horizons like I did. I liked the landscape and nature paintings the most as there was an intensity to the style you won’t find in artwork from Europe during the similar era.

Bottom line: if you can only visit one art museum while in Moscow then this is the one to visit. If you don’t have a passport then go to Minneapolis instead.

This is a must see in Moscow. On the Saturday afternoon I visited it was jam packed but still, the massive amount of high quality Russian Impressionist work is amazing

totally worth the price! Large collection of paintings and beautiful statue. We spent 2 hours here and almost skipped lunch since we wanted to take a detail look of each exhibit. The building itself is so pretty and big.
You don't have to buy online ticket. No long queue and i think no daily quota (unlike kremlin)

A little difficult to get to but worth it. If you don’t get a guide, the audio is suggested.We don’t get a lot of Russian art exposure and the transition from painting only icons to classics is interesting to see unfold.

Actually is world famous. Not much I can add to this except that the closure to time is too early and the washrooms are absolute mess. The art inside is classic which shall not be comment of course. Facilities itself need a improvement for sure
