“Into to Russian art”
Reviewed November 22, 2012

Scored free tickets otherwise I wouldn't have bothered to visit yet another museum but it was a great introduction to Russian art. The palace it's hoped in is worth seeing as well.

“The real gem of the city!”
Reviewed November 21, 2012

My favourite museum in St.Petersburg.
Its collection of the Russian icons is unique in the world. Very educative and heartrending.
Vrubel and Aivasovskiy masterpieces are unforgettable and very impressive.
The Russian painting of the early 20 century sometimes reaches the height of the European mpressionism, post-impressionism and analitycal abstractionism. (See Petrov-Vodkin, Filonov, Golovin)
Entrance fee -200rub. It's a MUST!

“Wonder Russian works of art”
Reviewed November 13, 2012

Buy the combine ticket to get into 3 other venues which are all within walking distance and wonderful building and art works. Go early to avoid the tour groups.
