Great place to visit! You get to see lots of art, painted on canvas with oil. Also the gift store, a bit pricey but worth checking it out. And the basement, which includes tradition Ukrainian clothe which was a great addition to the whole concept of the museum.
Absolutely amazing place. The Museum is fantastic with a healthy selection of traditional and contemporary Russian Art you can easily spend a few hours browsing their rotating collection. We recently held our wedding at the Museum and we could not be happier. The space is great for a moderately sized wedding, guests can browse the art while arriving and the paintings add a fantastic atmosphere to your ceremony. Michelle is great at making the ceremony run smoothly and the process could not have been more painless. I would definitely recommend this place as a venue weddings as well as a visit to view the art.
