  • This Gallery houses a fine collection of Russian art from all eras and uses the building very well. I believe the building used to be a church and is grand and imposing. Well worth a visit.  more »

  • An amazing place. A very good collection. A wonderful combination of tradition and modern technology. Try to visit before it moves to another building.
  • Dear Julia Borisovna! June 3, 2017 was a visitor to an art gallery. Faced with ignorance of staff and boorish attitude of security guards. The essence of the incident by first describe. Hall from the entrance I noticed that the paintings glisten and asked about this smotritel'nicu: "what's this glass or protective varnish?" in connection with that she couldn't give a definite answer, I knocked on the glass. This greatly angered her, she said, "stop, I call the security service ...", I, in turn, asked her, "what happened?" and, if necessary, then let calls.

Employee name I can't tell, because he refused to introduce themselves, but pulled out from the instructions for visiting the gallery.

  • Second time in Perm, decided once again to visit the Perm State Gallery (although in the beginning had doubts that there might appear a second time). In General, the most interesting in this temporary exhibition gallery. Now there is an exhibition of photographs and collectible porcelain. (As of 3.05) Things have to take in the cloakroom, clean toilet, equipped with wi-fi. You can download the app Maugry but useful it is not very much, just a more detailed description of some of the exhibits. In General, I recommend. A small, but cosy Gallery. Temporary exhibition on photos of collection of porcelain.
