Trip Planner: Europe / Russia / Central Russia / Moscow / Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts
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

It was a nice to go here even though I got rejected with my EU Vaccination certificate at the first time. They don’t accept European vaccines. Please bring a PCR test with you to enjoy this museum. It’s a great place to go to when visiting Moscow during pandemic.
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.
Painting exposition in the main building is quite boring. There are no any special art examples. Nice Egypt and Mesopotamia halls. Beautiful sculpture hall. Sometimes there can be good temporary exhibitions, like Bill Viola in the first half of 2021.
This museum is rich in art and the architecture of the building. It's not gigantic, but you will get to travel through ancient greece and 15th - 16th century art. Many of which are reproductions (statues) molden on the originals. If you forget about the facy they are reproductions and you spend some time looking at the art and the yeats when they were actually made, you will be pleasantly surprised to find out that the srill date multiple centuries ago and deserve just as much respect. Got the chance to view original study drawings that inspired bigger pieces and it's very inspiring. Seeing the process and the approach of these masters of art when they were in search of perfection is truly worth your time. I enjoyed analyzing these different drawings, the strokes and the details which came to eventually create some of the world renowed pieces we came to all know.
There is place great to see sculptures yunani era till egypt era and also many painting. Painting in the 21 era and back then, its very huge place for booking ticket go to website for student there is special day should confirm first because there is special free day for student just show the id card student
