The State Russian museum holds the largest collection of fine arts in Russia. It was commissioned in 1895 in the impressive neoclassical Mikhailovskiy Palace and traces the complete history of Russian art, from magnificent 11th century icons to contemporary works. The palace itself which is a former imperial residence built for Grand Duke Michael Pavlovich, is a sight to see as many of the halls retain their original opulent Italianate interiors.
The notable pieces of art are by artistes like Karl Brullov, Simon Ushakov, Ivan Nikitin and many more prominent Russian stalworths. The museum is the instructional centre of art museums of the Russian Federation, overseeing activities of 260 art museums in Russia.

A magnificent collection of Russian - pre-1917, post 1991 and Soviet era artworks. Unsurpassed in scope. A fascinating museum for those who wish to learn about Russian history. Also sports a splendid restaurant!
This museum is a must-visit if you are in St. Petersburg and have even a remote interest in art. Yes, the Hermitage is amazing, so this museum sort of takes a back seat, but I spent a splendid afternoon here taking in centuries of Russian art. It's fascinating to see how the artwork here parallels, contrasts with, and was influenced by western European art from the same time periods.
Some beautiful artwork; nice size museum for a full afternoon. Like most modern art exhibits, that section of the museum can be skipped altogether, or seen in 10% of the time spent with the real art.
You will find some amazing paintings and artifacts here. Must try!
This museum is amazing for art lovers. Thousand of paintings are there which shows the history of Russia. Few amazing paintings shows the battles of Russia with other countries. Its located in Saint Petersburg close by Nevsky prospect. You need around 4 to 5 hours to see all the art work including painting, statues and other clay made object. I hope my review and pics will help you.
