  • Go-will not regret! The Museum is very interesting and you can always get a lot of new experiences for every taste. Very interesting museum space is organized-unusual, diverse and with great taste. For lovers of modern audio and video information sources it is possible to view individual interviews with artists, video stories about contemporary art, etc. Ongoing exhibitions, lectures and Concerto. Now works very interesting exhibition "delightful world of Fellini", where you can see the original costumes used on the set of films Fellini (legendary costumes Juliet Maziny, Marcello Mastroianni, Anita Ekberg, etc.).

  • Unlike the eponymous Museum Café. Featured affordable collection of contemporary art in Russia, as for me. Many floors, go long. Everything is duplicated in English. There are elevators. There are several souvenir shops. There you can buy souvenirs and gifts for friends in the style of modern art. But I advise you to look up for cards. Yes, those that you can send mail. They stand for 30 rubles, and caring seller adds to buying corporate envelope Museum. The quality of the postcards have a terrific! About the prices. In General, visit the Erarta "case is not cheap, but there are a few lajfhakov. First, I advise you to purchase an annual subscription. Costs will be released a little more than a single exhibition tickets as well so you can walk around as much as you want. Pass the card cannot be photographed and you can stop at the entrance. And if you're a student up to 21 years, the discounts even more. The Museum many unusual paintings, this cannot be seen in the tutorial, and in social networks such things not specifically listed. By the way, in the Museum there is a picture of the authorship of Sergey Shnurov (Yes, the one from the "Leningrad"). You can also visit pjatnadcatiminutnye interactive elements, the so-called "u-space" (which I have not yet got, but as I write, whether on this splurge). A total of eight pieces. By the way, the site of the Exhibition Centre promises to eight new exhibitions every three months. I wonder, is this true?
