  • Watched the basic exhibition, which wqs interesting but basic. Nothing so special, one very nice Vinogradov, one Aivazovsky. Still, worth visiting.

  • Vasily Vereshchagin was a Russian war artist, working in the second half of the 19th century and covering the Russo-Turkish War in 1877-78. His paintings are noted for their violent realism, and the exotic landscapes he recorded in India, China and the Philippines near the end of his life. In 1914, a decade after Vereshchagin passed away, this museum was founded in his memory and has a number of his paintings, alongside pieces by other artists that have been donated over the years. There’s a rich assortment of Russian art from the period by the likes of Ivan Aivazovsky, Rufin Sudkovsky and Mark Antokolsky, but also western art, on show in a separate gallery.
  • Very nice museum. It consists of the main exposition and exhibitions. I strongly recommend visiting all exhibitions. The miniature exhibition is just a collection of masterpieces! The exhibition of works by the artist Antonyuk and the exhibition of children's works charge with a positive mood.
