Moscow's largest museum of Western art, Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts holds one of the most significant collections of Impressionist and post-Impressionist works in the world. Opened in 1912, this institution also displays Renaissance masterpieces, notably works by Botticelli, Tiepolo, Veronese, and Rembrandt. An exhibit dedicated to ancient civilizations, a major draw for history buffs, contains examples of Egyptian ritual items, sarcophagi, jewelry, and weapons. Pay special attention to the displays featuring 2000-year-old artifacts from the purported site of ancient Troy, excavated in the 1870s by German archaeologist Heinrich Schliemann. Pick up an audio guide at the info desk in front of the museum shop.

  • Beautiful boutique museum. An inviting selection of French Impressionists. Well worth the visit. Well staffed and curated. Definitely deserves a 2nd visit next time in Moscow

  • Amazing museum. Indeed, it shows how much art is valuable for Russian people. Although the staff know a little bit English they tried their best to help. GREAT EXPERIENCE
  • To visit the museum you have to buy tickets in advance on the museum's website. There are available time slots with steps of 15 min between them. The main building contents a large collection of copies of the famous sculptures by their epochs. There in museum it is allowed to make the pictures and to sketch with a charcoal on a paper sized no more than A4. If you choose not crowded day, it is a calm place to explore and sketch the items.
