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.

difficult to find (near the Taras Shevchenko Park) and few strange rules inside, but it's worth to visit, especially if you like Russian art of 19-20 th century. Opened only 3 days a week, check before you want to go.
