The Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts, Moscow
(4.4/5 based on 1,200+ reviews on the web)
Moscow's largest museum of Western art, The Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts holds one of the most significant collections of Impressionist and post-Impressionist works in the world. Opened in 1912, this institution also displays Renaissance masterpieces, notably works by Botticelli, Tiepolo, Veronese, and Rembrandt. An exhibit dedicated to ancient civilizations, a major draw for history buffs, contains examples of Egyptian ritual items, sarcophagi, jewelry, and weapons. Pay special attention to the displays featuring 2000-year-old artifacts from the purported site of ancient Troy, excavated in the 1870s by German archaeologist Heinrich Schliemann. Pick up an audio guide at the info desk in front of the museum shop.

  • There is a collection that is a bit unclear mix (no English translation to the curator's words) with loans from different museums and private collections of paintings, statues, masks etc. Some are jus...  more »
  • Love this museum. Come in any time of the year when visit in Moscow. In addition to the interesting permanent exhibition, where you can get to the stunning exhibitions. Unfortunately, we must stand huge queues to enter. Buy tickets online is very difficult. They are bought on the first day of sales and then sold at speculative prices. But our interest and desire to get into this wonderful Museum.

  • I adore this place. The Museum is suitable for both adults and children. Permanent exposition is excellent. And constantly bring something new. Went to Bakst, simply superb.

  • The temporary exhibitions are very cool and enlightening. When we were there, there was a Leon Bakst exhibition. I had never seen anything like it. However the main exhibition had some cool, original relics for example in the Egyptian section. However I was a little disappointed in all the copies they had. In one way it was a nice way to share these artworks for those who don't have the time or money to reach the originals. However in another way it felt a bit tacky. Absolutely everyone recommended this museum to us, however I would imagine Moscow sports better museums.
  • Beautiful collection of europe renaissance, ancient egypt, greek, sumer and rome.
  • Fantastic museum laid out in chronological order from Egypt to 17th century. Great sculpture. Another wing has modern works.
  • The exhibitions are mostly very professionally prepared, thanks to very professional curators! The café is not so good
  • One of the best galleries in Moscow, I can highly recommend the building with art of Europe and America of 19-20th century. The main building is not too interesting for me. The department of private collections is good, but it depends on current exhibitions
