One of the best, most extensive art museums I have ever visited. There were many exhibitions on when I was there and they seem to rotate quite frequently. Brought the work of Ivan Aivazovsky and Chingiz Aitmatov to my attention - two big pluses. I...More

This is a well-curated museum, with excellent explanatory signage in several languages, including English. We were especially interested in an exhibit of Russian paintings, something you don't get the chance to see just anywhere.

I liked this museum since it had quite a few works I enjoyed. Many paintings from the 1800s and also from the Soviet period. I paid two extra rubels to be able to photograph inside. Well worth the visit!

Easy to arrive walking! It is a small museum, but gives us a great view of some east painters! Price is 6 blr and it worth! It is a must in Minsk!

We liked visiting this museum. It contains a bit of everything. Be aware that is it bigger than it could seem at the beginning. Audio-guides available, but not promoted (too bad). Very interesting the area dedicated to Soviet paintings. Nice, lovely, cozy bar inside.

The museum is quite interesting and there are several and different things to see. Something to improve is the display of the works in display and some more explanations for the visitors.

Like others who have written positive reviews of the museum, I found it a nice surprise. It is not huge but it has a perfectly respectable collection of art, predominantly by Belorussian artists. And therein lies the charm and the added value: the opportunity to...More

Very interesting Icon exposition! Amazing paintings of Shishkin, Repin, Pukirev. The Unequal Marriage is simply superb!!! A bit disappointed for not being able to get a guide (tour) on Saturday...

Looking at the front of the building I almost didn't bother going in - and then like Aladdin's cave with incredible treasures and a beautiful extension to the rear! If you like art make sure you go!
