We forgot that most Russian museums are closed on Mondays and so we couldn't go inside the building. The guard at the gate allowed us to visit the courtyard and we were delighted in seeing the collection of sculptures displayed outside. This was worth the...More

Went here as our guide book said it had paintings by Chagall and Kandinsky. The sculptures in the courtyard (free) were good. But the only thing inside the museum we could find was a very extensive exhibit on Gaudi. Which I wasn't really bothered about....More

The Modern Art Museum may not command the same depth of exhibits as some of the larger museums, but they compensate with a frequent rotation in exhibitions, a lot of multi-discipline pieces, and a pleasant staff. If you only have a day in Moscow it...More

Visited off the strength of the name, but without any great knowledge of art generally, or Russian artists in particular. The courtyard is free to enter and interesting, and the open collection on two floors was also pretty good. No big names on display, but...More

At the mentioned place, changing and well selected expositions of young artists are to be seen. As a rule, there are some general recollections of the tendencies of art worldwide. The graphical works typically are peculiar and of high quality.

Tverskaya
Tverskaya can’t be discovered with just a first
glance, the neighborhood is shaped around a long
street populated with well-known shops and brands. But
