There had very poor painting tricks and was not comparable with other illusion galleries in the world. A person at the first try to convince to buy tickets of other galleries and museums they owned. They had about 10 museums and galleries beside each other.

Good idea and decent implementation in the really uncomfortable space of the ex-shop or alike. But really worn out and in need of renovation.

Nearby
Arbat
Crowds of tourists, both local and international take
in Old Arbat and its modern and gigantic peer – New
Arbat. One reason visitors keep coming is no doubt
Konstantin Melnikov’s famous private house, now open
to the public and worthy of a visit. After exploring
one of the oldest parts of Moscow, avoid the crowds
and turn to the side streets and boulevards where
calmness and affordable food is plentiful.
