  • Space place! You learn always something new, every time I come here! Real art, present as Coca Cola, iPhone and Ploshchad revolyutsii Metro station. One of the favorite places! Actually getting smarter by learning new! Sometimes bad service entrance, wardrobe and lack a good buffet does not matter here! Dude go here!

  • An incredible experience to know a large part of Russian art. Between Impressionism and Classicism, through periodic exhibitions of modern art. Very pleasant to spend an entire day among the many rooms of the museum. Nice and accessible to all.
  • Be sure to buy a ticket to the museum and see the gallery. Here you can spend the whole day. It is one and the most popular museums in Moscow
  • You could spend all day here. Good museum at a decent price. If you happen to know someone Russian, get them to by tickets as they are cheaper.
  • Amazing paintings and sculptures! It's huge and a visit can last 2 hours or more to watch them all.
  • Охватить весь Лаврушинский в один присест - нереально, поэтому вместо детального изучения обширной экспозиции можно просто неспешно бродить и зала в зал, выхватывая взглядом знакомые с детства картины. В галерее можно фотографировать без вспышки - мелочь, а приятно.
