I didn't have the chance to go inside or visit it when it has α performance but outside it is a very good building and a beautiful square around it.

I booked tickets in advance directly from Bolshoi website. I got seats for front row of balcony (#10 I think) and they were good. I would not recommend seats in balconies if they are not in the front row. Just to be in the theater...More

We are talking about the Bolshoi - one of the most famous theaters in town. You need to book in advance and the place is just fantastic. We saw a beautiful ballet and will definitely recommend.

As I remember , excursion to this museum is a part of the excursion to Bolshoi itself. The ticket is 1500 rubl. It is held on Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 11:10 and 11:15. It takes about 1,5 hours.
