The Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts (Russian: Музеи изобразительных искусств им. А.С. Пушкина) is the largest museum of European art in Moscow, located in Volkhonka street, just opposite the Cathedral of Christ the Saviour. The International musical festival Svyatoslav Richter's December nights has been held in the Pushkin museum since 1981. The Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts holds one of Russia's largest collections of foreign art from ancient times to the present day. Its modern presentation introduces visitors to the Museum's extensive study collections of toned plaster casts reproducing works of Graeco-Roman art, the Middle Ages and the Renaissance. The Museum also houses original paintings and sculpture, drawings and examples of decorative and applied art. In the halls on the ground floor original works of art are displayed from Ancient Egypt, Ancient Greece and Rome, together with European paintings ranging in date from the 8th to the 8th centuries. Two halls, known as the Italian and Greek Courtyards, contain casts. The halls on the first floor display for visitors casts of art works from Ancient Greece and Rome, the Middle Ages and the Renaissance. The halls, hung with paintings, exhibit works of art from the 19th and 20th centuries. Known for its outstanding temporary exhibitions, this museum also has an impressive permanent collection of Impressionist and post-Impressionist art.

Completely overshadowed by the Hermitage in St Petersburg, The Pushkin definitely can hold it's own! Just don't miss works of Van Gogh, Picasso, Degas, Matisse, which are located in a separate building, beside the main building (included in the ticket price).

If you have been to the British Museum, this would pale in comparison. That said, you can to view art from countries like Egypt, Italy and Greece.

An visit to Moscow must include a visit to the Pushkin museum, there are so many masters works displayed here. Don't forget to allow time to enjoy the exhibition. There is a small cafe that sells light meals, staff very friendly and helpful.

Is Priam’s Treasure, a cache of gold and other artifacts discovered archaeologist Heinrich Schliemann still at the Pushkin and is it on display? I saw it there in 1993, shortly after it was revealed that the Russians had it and would like to see it again. I may be in Moscow in Spring 2016.
