Some wonderful art: icons, paintings by Repin, porcelains. All that in an 18th century mansion with beautiful baroque ceilings. The heat in June was intense despite a few open windows and a couple of sluggish A/C units. All this left us vaguely nauseous and tired....More

Entrance fee was 60 hyrvnia. I did not realise that this did not include photography. I needed to pay an extra 40 for that, I think. By the time I was told I was already upstairs so I didn’t bother with photos. The rooms are...More

An exceptional collection. A must for any art lover. You will need to pay for use of a camera ( phone cameras are free) . Tickets are scrupulously checked and as one moves from section to section they are checked again. Seeing how many tourists...More

We had an hour before our train and popped in. For the size of the building, which itself has some interesting rooms, the collection upstairs provided a high quality viewing experience.

The exposition features Russian art starting with old icons, portraits of sovereigns, beautiful landscapes and even some porcelain (i was amused to see some soviet propaganda dishes). However, the permanent collection, located upstairs isn't too exhaustive and can be seen in about an hour or...More

A great opportunity to see some really fine Russian icons and paintings. Don't be put off by the dimly lit early rooms with indifferent portraits. Mid to late 19th century rooms are brightly lit with some outstanding art. Memorable for us were Shishkin's woodland landscapes,...More
