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.

  • It is with great pleasure that visited an exhibition of works by Raphael from the Uffizi Galleries and other collections in Italy. Wonderful paintings and drawings. Waiting in a queue for about two hours in the freezing cold in a snowstorm was rewarded! Turn still moves slowly. But there is also a pleasant change in the Organization of access to the Museum. For preferential categories of citizens organized a separate entrance, on the right, please consider this-may be useful. Increased the number of hangers in the wardrobe lockers are carry-on bags. Additional ticket office next to the wardrobe-for the convenience of visitors. Thanks for significant improvements to the organizers! The guides spend wonderful detailed excursions-lore. Audio guide too for fun and profit, works perfectly! (mortgage increased to 2000 USD). In frost better get dressed in warmer stand will have at least two hours. Pleasant impressions!

  • In the buildings and imposing is the appearance of the next is not popular, being pushed in a European collection of museums. Indeed, not to mention Impressionism in France is, but I think that one was unearthed in Troy,

  • Visited the Museum with students 6 class. Tour "the history of ancient Egypt". Overall enjoyed it. Besides help refresh your memory tour which visited in Luxor. Unfortunately I don't remember the name of the Guide, but it was a cute young woman. The second group of our class (class were purchased by voucher for 2 Group on 15 people) was given a guide "gloomy old lady". Rate her as a guide.

  • 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
