  • Eat them at the Museum! There are also visiting exhibitions from the Hermitage, etc. But ticket 4 euro for a country with a developed area in 300 is a little inaccessible, except that tourists to check out. Selection of souvenirs and printed matter at the entrance, and it is small. And no techno lotions inside without holograms and laser lights.

  • 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. 
  • A lot of interesting objects there you can find
  • Check it out - very funny but also informative on mainly Russian artists.
  • Very strange that in the National Art Museum of the Republic of Belarus, national artists hang in the hallways (and very few), and the bulk of the premises given under Šiškinyh, Ajvazovskih, Repinyh with giant portraits of Russian Czars! Somehow I find it demeaning everything should be for the Belarusians. This is not a National Museum, is a branch of the Tretyakov Gallery.
