  • The other day, finally visited an exhibition of Raphael in the Pushkin Museum. Immediately the ladies Tip: buy tickets on the website, so as not to stand in the queue that has me impressed, so much so that Moscow does not have weather. The exhibition is organized strictly according to the sessions, which indicated in the ticket. Exposure, despite the small number of paintings and drawings, very much. Are mainly portraits, written at the beginning of the 16th century, is also of great interest (for me personally, especially) self-portrait of the artist. All registered and posted correctly, excellent lighting, lots of informative material, offer audio guide, you can pass in the Hall with a guide, getting more information and the opportunity to hear the answers to your questions. In General, the choice is yours. Cons: very many visitors to paintings to come you can not constantly all photographed. The ticket says that 90-minute session lasts. During this time I had time to consider all the paintings not once, read all the basic information materials, so that time abound. All the paintings brought from Italy, most of the Uffizi Gallery of Florence. So don't miss the opportunity to touch the beautiful, so much so that to go to Italy, not all can.

  • And an exhibition of the works of the great artist, which is quite small, unfortunately, and the museum itself, which never leaves anyone indifferent, adorned the weekends and will the main inspiring factor. But, access ... It's just a horror! The entrance is divided into 2 stream (one on Raphael, second at the Intal′ânskuû exhibition), which in any case are combined into a single door in the same cash register, etc. Those who are more cunning, are ostensibly on the Italians and quietly warm waiting priobretenâ tickets for Raphael. Maybe just buy freely and go, we can't see it. Decent Muscovites and guests of the city stand in the cold for hours. On one of the columns, whatever the timetable hangs "Sessions" visits, which, moreover, does not correspond to reality and is not respected. .. Why? Thanks guys, that before entering distribute vacated blankets and make coffee.

  • Good day, today visited an exhibition of Raphael. This is fine, this is a must watch. But I want to write about how organized exchange of electronic tickets. First you have to go into the building, Volkhonka St. 14. The box office. There's something you and exchanging electronic tickets at the entrance. This we do not know. Nowhere in the ad building and box office no. There are zaborčike on the fine print. Then you need to go not into the main entrance, and run by the main building to the end, turn left and find the entrance No. 5 (if not mistaken). Here's you and on the spot. But how much had to make gestures. For older people it is inconvenient. (this I do not myself). And the rest is all good. I wish the positive emotions.

  • Fantastic museum laid out in chronological order from Egypt to 17th century. Great sculpture. Another wing has modern works.
  • Avoid the cafe. Horrible service. No proper que. All statues are copies
  • The exhibitions are mostly very professionally prepared, thanks to very professional curators! The café is not so good
  • Ok, maybe I'm overreacting, but how in the world you could expect to see so many fake statues (plaster casts) in such a famous museum!!? Also, the personnel is very rude, they through you out when the bell rings(sounds like fire alarm) indicating it's time to close 20h.
  • 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
