Moscow's largest museum of Western art, Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts holds one of the most significant collections of Impressionist and post-Impressionist works in the world. Opened in 1912, this institution also displays Renaissance masterpieces, notably works by Botticelli, Tiepolo, Veronese, and Rembrandt. An exhibit dedicated to ancient civilizations, a major draw for history buffs, contains examples of Egyptian ritual items, sarcophagi, jewelry, and weapons. Pay special attention to the displays featuring 2000-year-old artifacts from the purported site of ancient Troy, excavated in the 1870s by German archaeologist Heinrich Schliemann. Pick up an audio guide at the info desk in front of the museum shop.

Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts reviews
Beautiful boutique museum. An inviting selection of French Impressionists. Well worth the visit. Well staffed and curated. Definitely deserves a 2nd visit next time in Moscow more »
The Pushkin Museum is made up of 3 separate exhibition spaces with separate tickets: 1. the Main Building ( zillions of ugly plaster copies of world masterpieces, some nice Old Masters, some dusty..... more »
Great museum. I went in particular for a special exhibition that was going on. I found it amusing that rather than have the exhibition in it's own space they simply covered up the permanent collection works with black cloths and scooted the sculpture out of the way. It became a backdrop for the amazing collection on display. Overall the building is old and interesting. The gift shop is not really a shop. More of a concession stand type setup. I like a good museum shop where you can wander around looking at everything. This is very limited. As an American I was disappointed that they didn't have a copy of the exhibition catalog in English. HINT: Order your tickets online to avoid potentially long lines!! Then you can scoot right in the side door and off you go..
Amazing museum that holds, we saw the the exhibit of impressionist artists and it was looking into a book of art history. All the masters and some of their greatest works, ground floor of the museum especially the Egyptian room is worth seeing, many of the sculptures are plaster reproductions however. Opens at 11 recommend getting tickets ahead of time as the line in can be a tad long and e-tickets entitles you to skip it
