To see one of the world's biggest collections of Russian art, head to State Tretyakov Gallery. Established in 1856, the museum began as a private collection of artworks acquired by merchant Pavel Tretyakov and housed inside a building designed by artist Viktor Vasnetsov. Today, this national repository of art contains over 170,000 pieces, including notable works by Repin, Kandinsky, and Malevich. The museum's vast collection also includes a series of 12th-century icons painted on wood by unknown artists.

A great place , houres to spend ! You can see here multy painting styles . We did it on a rainy day and it was a solution for the problem of: what to do on a rainy day at Moscow. more »
Obviously it was raining and cold when we were waiting in line to get in (we visited Russia in fall). There were a lot of tourists and guide groups inside as it is a famous place. Basically, if you know something about paintings, art, or History - you will find at least one paining you are familiar with. Take a guided group obviously so you know what's where and learn something new and interesting. Some paintings are as old as from 1100's all the way till now modern time.
Great gallery to spend the whole day. The only thing I wish - it would be kids friendly. My little son was bored and didn’t have a chance to play or find any activities for kids. Located in a nice neighborhood.
