What people are saying:

Most of the collections of Tretyakov Gallery (Третьяковская галерея) are purchased by the rich 19th century merchant Tretyakov, who has his statue on the front door of the museum. There are more than 60 galleries, and it takes at least 3 or 4 hours to appreciate them all.

Absorb Russian history, learn more about famous Russian and European artists as you explore the State Tretyakov Gallery. Built in 1856 and expanded by brothers Pavel and Sergei Tretyakov to include Dutch and French works, the popular gallery has been maintained by the city of Moscow since 1892. The art collections contain the works of master craftsmen from the Renaissance to the present, including Ivan Kramskoi, Illia Repin and Vasilii Perov. Not a stuffy, commercialized establishment, the museum is refreshing and delightful with interesting exhibitions by artists little known in the western world. An interactive tour led by a host is the best way to make the most of your visit.
