There are usually temporary exhibitions in this building. It is also much less crowded than other parts of the Hermitage and therefore more pleasant.

Three rooms of Degas, four rooms of Picasso and five rooms of Matisse. Need I say more? Every major Impressionist is here and entry is free if you bought a ticket to the Hermitage across the square. Best gallery in Moscow.

A lot of famous paintings. This I have not seen anywhere! Impressionists I liked immediately. An interesting tour and I spent a lot of time there. Interesting and beautiful rooms in the Art Nouveau style.

This is the huge building with the arch on the opposite side of Palace Square to the Hermitage. The sheer scale of all the buildings around here is incredible. Amazing history!

This collection is part of the Hermitage but in another building. It is probably the largest collection of Impressionist art in one museum and well worth a visit. Warning: once you have left the exhibition to go into the museum coffee shop you are not...More
