I heard a lot of great things about this "museum". After visiting it, I felt cheated, just few exhibition rooms with not much to see. My opinion: it's quite overpriced and overrated.

My visit was sadly not as I wished. The museum is smaller than expected for Moscow but still has good art. Even the Audioguides is very good. BUT the staff is sooo unfriendly - many can’t speak English and resign to help you at all...More

expensive ticket for very disappointing museum ... I guess people come when this place hosts concerts or temporary exhibitions otherwise the main museum has nothing much to show. I don't recommend visiting it.

Just been to the museum. Was that really it? Lots of bare space. Some room where 3D printers were working (not sure what they were doing.....) Some rooms with what looked like scientific gadgets for kids - only one being operated and apparently they were...More

The Garage Museum is very easily to be seen when you walk through Gorki Park along the Moskva and see this sterile cube standing right in-between the greens and sidewalks. The Garage Museum of contemporary Art exhibits pieces that I would've considered somewhat foreign to...More

While perhaps one of the finest examples of 'negative space' in any contemporary art museum, I can't recommend it. Attached is a photo of practically only piece of art in the whole museum(baby and ball not included.) There are no permanent art installations and I...More

Yakimanka acts as Moscow’s evergreen lungs with prime
beaches on the Moscow river. All the benefits of
visiting and living in Yakimanka are gathered at the
Moscow river embankment – three parks: Gorky, Muzeon
and Neskuchny garden shape this green stripe with
museums showing the hippest contemporary art. The area
is full of activities for your eyes (museums), mouth
(restaurants) and feet (sport and dance-wise). Access
