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.

Other ancient cultures are also represented, but without any interesting exhibits. One thing should be known: The Pushkin Museum is primarily a large cast collection, because the plaster casts of important works of art from all over the world occupy the largest space in the exhibition space.

We paid 500 Rubles each to visit the museum and once inside, they told us that one section in building number one was closed as well as the whole building number two, where the impressionists and othe... more »
I honestly did not expect to see 80% of all of the world famous statues I know within half an hour, since I didn’t not do a proper research and just went on my own.

Such a wonderful museum. Loved it! Easy to get around , cameras allowed (no flash).Not too big so a day would suffice. They have a nice cafe and easy access to the WCs. Something for everyone. Did not go to the impressionist museum next door , but that is another day 🎨
