  • Visited day celebrations February the exposition called "thaw". Got suddenly a lot of pleasure and positive emotions! Unfortunately, and my shame, I have little interest in the art of our country during the reign of the Councils, but now partly space began to be filled! The exhibition is wonderful! Interesting, unexpected and even home-made touching the exhibits, and to my beloved parents this turned out to be a journey to the island childhood:) The only slight negative "-turn, but first, we stand up and early on this managed to primary influx, and, secondly, it is always nice to see where so many people of all ages yearn for beauty!

  • Would definitely recommend to visit this wonderful Museum gorgeous painting! How cool that I visited here! Was very glad to see those gorgeous canvases by painters, who all previous years I could only see the pictures. especially admired canvases Vasnetsov and Aivazovsky! Surprised by the reaction of older foreigners on the portrait of Chekhov. They almost got up on his knees, threw up their hands and promolvili-on, Czechs! to visit this time it took me 4 hours, and this in my opinion is not enough. Here need to go multiple times hours at 2.5 -3. Will definitely be back here again!
