As a Russian and a Muscovite, I visited it numerous times. This time around it was in December.
I'm a globe-trotter so I'm well acquainted with the Louvre, National Gallery, Prado, Uffizi, Metropolitan, etc., etc., etc. and I do think Tretyakov Gallery cannot match them. I mean, at all. If you're looking for Botticelli, Rembrandt, Gainsborough, Manet and alike this is not a place for you. Like most attractions in this country, it is very Russian. Paintings are mostly dedicated to our folklore, Orthodox legends, real events from our past. There's a remarkable collection of portraits of our princes, tzars, emperors and empresses, aristocracy, etc., i.e., people most of foreigners never even heard of. Icons exhibited there is a real treasure, however, - no doubt.
There are English speaking guides available (to be organized in advance) as well as audio guides in various foreign languages. There's also a small cafeteria inside.
Tickets should be bought in advance - strongly recommended - via their official site. Otherwise you'll be almost destined to blow it.
All in all, recommended, of course.

The 11th-19th centuries collections are beautifully set in a 19th-century building. The visitor is provided with an audioguide with full-length explanations of the exhibits and their historical and cultural context.

If you are a culture-vulture, this is the right place to visit. I liked it a lot! But, please note, there are several buildings, and maybe you need to walk a bit from one to another.

There're several more famous places to visit in Russian capital, but for any art lover this museum is a must.
It's entirely focused on Russia's masters set in a fairy tale like bldg. This is the main museum, but Tretyakov includes two more addresses in the capital.
Incredible collection of fine art paintings and sculptures.
Beware due to Covid entry allowance is limited, so it's better to buy beforehand online preferably on weekdays.

Main Moscow museum which is must have.

Remember that there several buildings in Moscow for Tretyakov gallery and they are not close to each other. Check the ticket and address on it.

Main building looks like in fairy-tale. Another building is on the left hand from the main entrance.

There are also a New Tretyakov gallery, where you can find another part of the collection.

And all the biggest separate exhibitions are hold there. It's located between Park Kultury and Oktyabrskaya metro station. Right on the Moscow-river and Muzeon park.

I'm a native but even I always check tickets.
