Looks like it will be amazing when opened again. Tons of construction around the city as it cleans up for the 2018 World Cup. Big football stadium under construction near the museum.

Located near the Red square, this site is very easy to reach. And is worth visiting. Very good insight how Russian nobility lived. Staff could be better in terms of politeness.

This small yet important neighbourhood is full of
state institutions and offices. To understand where
modern Russia began, go to the Kremlin and State
Historical Museum on Red Square. After satisfying your
historical curiosities, indulge in modern pleasures at
GUM Department Store - not just for the sake of
shopping but for the sake of architectural pleasure as
