We really enjoyed this Gallery, it was not too big and had a lot of good art. There are so many art museums in Russia and they have the best of most painters. 2 hours is enough to have an overall view.

This 20th Century Art Gallery has one of the most impressive collections I have ever seen. There is a brilliant mix of styles and pieces from world renowned artists. It is free on Wednesdays and there is also free wifi throughout the museum.

You would never imagine how great and creative AND courageous these artists were and how sometimes they produced art ahead of their times! A bit huge and might take hours to digest...still time well invested!!

One of the optional tours on our recent trip to Russia was the Tretyakov Gallery in Moscow. I am so glad we chose to visit as it holds an incredible trove of Russian art gathered by Pavel Tretyakov in the 1800s. It has grown to over 170,000 works. Most of the art we'd seen to this point was not Russian... More

No reproduction can't convey the beauty and drama of the great paintings of seascapes. Aivazovsky's sea infinitely varied and equally well, in the fury of the tempest, in blissful peace. The organizers managed to satisfy the high demand, to minimize the queue including at the expense of constantly exhibited on the Museum's website e-tickets. I would like to see a... More

We really wanted to visit this museum but everytime I tried to purchase a ticket online the website crashed. We turned up on our first morning in Moscow and there was a queue of at least 120 people snaking from the entrance, with more in the building. I went to the front and asked whether there was separate line to... More

Staying in Yakimanka

Neighbourhood Profile
Yakimanka acts as Moscow’s evergreen lungs with prime beaches on the Moscow river. All the benefits of visiting and living in Yakimanka are gathered at the Moscow river embankment – three parks: Gorky, Muzeon and Neskuchny garden shape this green stripe with museums showing the hippest contemporary art. The area is full of activities for your eyes (museums), mouth (restaurants) and feet (sport and dance-wise). Access anywhere is easy, just hop on a river boat and continue your journey throughout the city.
