  • Were with children 8-12 years, children really enjoyed it. First, a small excursion, kids don't even have time to get tired. They further suggested that the game "guess a picture." The child selects any pattern of exposure, he is given the paper, pencils, crayons and paints. And then guess what the picture who drew. Even adults have participated. Everyone really enjoyed it!

  • Amazing collection of Russian artists of the early 20th century. Rich in its diversity, nerastiražirovannye publications, pictures in amazingly good condition (especially compared to the similar collection of the National Gallery). 2 floors, effortless when inspecting, very friendly staff. An unexpected bonus for me was the small but very interesting collection of Russian porcelain of the same time (and the end of the 19th century)-statues, created by exhibited artists. Went from there, "enlightened", a very nice, intelligent and interesting place!
