  • Excellent collection, a stunning Museum! The Museum is very carefully selected the best works of the best artists of the Soviet period. A unique Museum equipment-ranging from very atmospheric restored buildings of the former factory to design, design space and lighting exposure-all the latest technology. The Museum really cares about visitors-there are guided tours for both the youngest and for adolescents and adults. All will be interesting. Regularly held a very informative event. A huge thanks to the founder of the Museum and all employees.

  • Were in may on an excursion with a group of children from 2 to 5 years, for the exhibition "Russia along the way." Kids hour (!) were as adults, it is unforgettable. Do not even know that their more impressed-space with subdued light, the first impression of the Museum (all were in the Museum for the first time ever), paintings (boys were particularly interesting because by plane, train, etc.), the story of a guide (by age, interesting). In the end a bit tired, and comments with interest watched the video accompaniment to the exhibition. In General, we all fell in love with this Museum, we liked everything-place building, exhibition guide, prices, staff. Thanks)

  • Cool, when the old industrial buildings of red brick, as previously loved build, give new life. It is a European tradition, renovate industrial premises and conduct there. So when I got to the Museum of Russian realistic art, initially I appreciated architectural solution itself. A large brick chimney, wrought-iron staircases, brick. Then immediately at the entrance were pleased with the gift shop, I bought a mug and some postcards. Next, I got acquainted with the exposition. On several floors are mostly the work of artists working in the realistic genre. Not all paintings impressed, but many. After that came to the Museum to exhibit art in evacuation "on how art school moved to remote areas of the SOVIET UNION, fleeing from the war. Travel from Paveletskaya minutes 15-20.
