I like this museum. One can find very valuable paintings of Russian artists. Not to big so you can spend 2 hours without being exhausted.

Those who love Russian art from middle ages to the beginning of 20th cent, this is the perfect place. My favorite part is part with the Russian art of middle ages and Mikhail Vrubel. This museum is predecessor of the Museum of modern art on Krymsky Val in terms of the beginning of modern art.

The Tretyakov Gallery is one of the top things to do in Moscow and for good reason. The gallery is really a treasure trove of Russian art and art history. The collection is extensive and remarkable in its range through the ages, of styles and artists. It has some real master pieces of Russian art on display. As an English... More

There are some great paintings there. We went on a Sunday morning and it was very busy. Had to queue for 40 mins. to get in but worth it.

Because of Russia's historic protectionism of its own cultural heritage, the great masters of Russian painting are seldom found in even world-class galleries outside of Russia. Fortunately, you can bring yourself up to speed on everything that you've missed in this museum. The galleries progress with a logical and programmatic flow, and by the end you've got a great overview... More

I find it hard to express the many positive emotions this place brings out, in written text. This museum is impressive in every aspect. Focused mostly on impressionists and realists, the art shown here is an absolute gem I would not dare miss. The collection of old art is small but also very good. Must-see!

Neighbourhood Profile
It wouldn’t be a mistake to call Pyatnitskaya street the main axis of this neighborhood – turn one direction and you’ll find the Tretyakov Gallery in Lavrushinsky Lane, turn another – a hip Scandinavian restaurant. Old churches now embrace contemporary life with style and grace. Going to Zamoskvorechye is like visiting during the times when it was a medieval Russian quarter, but with a modern twist of 20th century buildings pushing themselves into the 21st century with new businesses opening weekly. Stroll down Pyatnitskaya to taste dozens of global cuisines – from Ukrainian and Georgian to Thai and American.
