(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.

  • In early January, visited the exhibition "the art of living. Interior of the burgher House ". Everything was great, except for the dressing room, there's always no nomerkov always turn while the locker room for groups is usually empty, but that there were allowed to pass things during a full House, you need to go and try to persuade the representative of administration. The exhibition Chamber, it is an interesting selection of painted works a little bit everyday items and one interactive composition. We would like to mention souvenir shop, where you can buy not only souvenirs with reproductions of famous painters, but also interesting thematic publications on painting and art. Always pleased to visit this museum.

  • A wonderful Museum, with many thematic rooms, which presents a variety of exhibits! Works by Rembrandt, Raphael, Michelangelo and many others. Despite the fact that the sculptures copies of originals, admire their accuracy and historical value. This museum is interesting to everyone, regardless of age, nationality, social status.

  • 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
