It is really a good luck that private collections which became a base for this museum remained untouched. And later curators we're improving it, based on available resources. Anyway, some classics of Russian arts have there pieces, and not bad pieces, still here. Worth visiting...

As it only costs 100 rubles for entry I hardly think I should comment that it's hardly value for money - but that's how I feel. The paintings are poor and poorly displayed.
