  • Well appointed ultra-modern museum in a grand neoclassical building, very easy to reach by trolley bus from Nevsky prospect (lines 10 &11 if I remember correctly). Sadly enough no tourists. A nice...  more »
  • One of the best museums in St.Petersburg. Obviously most of the tourists arriving to our city expect to visit wonderful palaces and churches however I would strongly recommend to find several hours...  more »
  • This museum is somewhat out of the way, but very much worth a visit. The lovely modern building contains an excellent permanent collection of modern art. The temporary exhibits are almost all...  more »

  • A very diverse, dynamic and creative exhibition of modern art that we enjoyed immensely. Make sure you allocate sufficient time for your visit. My wife and I spent around 3 hours visiting both wings (permanent exhibition on the left, and temporary ones on the right), and you can easily spend even more time there...
  • The biggest Modern Art Museum in Russia. It has an interesting concept. You need about 4 hours to through the whole 2 wings of the museum. Definitely try a couple of U-Space, but not the "Infinity", it is just a dark room. The restaurant is nice and they serve good drinks. Also, give it a try to the Cafe. 😉
  • Move museum, not only for adults but also kids (11 years old). Nice mix of contemporary art and exhibitions. Well worth a visit!
  • The temporary exhibitions are wonderful, funny, interesting with fabulous lighting but most of the permanent collection is cramped and lack curatorial direction as well as space. Half of the permanent work needs to rest in a storage room. The person who is making the purchases might consider more diverse contemporary crafts, not just painting that is so technically rooted in tradition. It is as if the purchase was made by someone with limited knowledge of global art directions. After a day at The Hermitage it was a very cool and energizing experience.
  • I have been to a lot of modern museums all around Europe. The great and famous ones along with the smaller edgy ones. This one beats them all. Wow!
