The Russian Museum Is in two sections,the Michailovsky Palace and the Benois wing.The palace is incredibly beautiful but I went mainly to see the Aivazovsky , Repin and Serov pictures. Not very interested in Communism art!

An extraordinary museum. We started our visit in the newer galleries, and were astounded with the breadth of the collection. Then on to the Palace section. Each room, with its original decoration and astounding ceilings and chandeliers was its own piece of art. The collection...More
