Don't have to much expectation of the collection but they do have a few nice pieces of art. Personally I liked their Eastern Collection, not very extensive but interesting pieces. The price should not withhold you of a visit.

There are some really great paintings of Saint Matthew & Luke in the museum. The facility could really use your support. It's easy to locate being not far from the city garden, and i highly recommend a visit!

This museum is one of my favourite in Odessa. Both exterior and interior are beautiful. Museum presents collection of Western and Eastern artists, and also organizes temporary exhibitions of modern painters, photographers and designers. Place not to be missed!
