Only saw half of the galleries, the highlight was the gallery dedicated to Icons and religious artworks. There is a section here that shows the restoration work done by a team of experts and with some remarkable results. The presentation in this gallery was as good as we have seen anywhere.

On a rainy or windy day, this museum is absolutely worth seeing. The collection is interesting, and gives a good Picture of Belarus art history. Many lovely landscape paintings. English translation for every item. The museum is not huge, so two hours will do fine.

You will be surprised at the depth and variety of art in their collection; the best way to understand a culture is to see the world through the eyes of its artists. Give yourself 2 hours and be sure to visit the cafe for free wifi

The museum is very interesting and well organized. The majority of works are paintings, with a relatively small number of sculptures. There are lots of portraits and a good number of religion related paintings. Art of Belarus seems quite vivid and intriguing.

a fantastic and fascinating museum with all sorts of paintings and precious artefacts displayed. I enjoyed the small ancient Egypt items, the items from India were numerous and photography was not allowed on the India items and photography not allowed on the wonderful wood carvings recently rescued from a church. Enjoyed the vast rooms and huge sweeping marble staircases, there... More

We came to this museum just to watch one exhibition but stayed here for two hours. This place has a good collection of russian and belorussian art and architecture is cool.

|The Museum is in the city centre/ It is not big and you'll spend at least 3 hour enjoy the art! The rooms are wide and full of light!! They accept bank card but if you are to buy some souveniers be ready to pay only in cash!!

It may be the Museum of National Art. It could just as well be the museum of missing art or left overs. There is no real story told in this museum. Too many pieces and they don't fit together. Everything is scattered in a very nice building. And most of the time there is an explanation in English. However, that... More
