Concierge.com's insider take:

Located directly across the street from the Cathedral of Christ the Savior, the State Pushkin Museum of Fine Arts is one of Russia's top museums. As part of a grand expansion plan endorsed by President Dmitry Medvedev and intended to turn the neighborhood into a "museum city" within the city, the museum has moved its greatest hits—including works by Monet, Cézanne, Gauguin, Matisse, Rodin, and Picasso—from the stately neoclassical main building to an adjacent mansion descriptively named the Gallery of Art of the Countries of Europe and America of the 19th and 20th Centuries. Now the Pushkin Museum, as it's known for short (not to be confused with the Pushkin Museum devoted to the Russian poet located several blocks away), has more space in the main building to display special exhibitions and its fine collection of Dutch and Italian art, ancient Egyptian pieces, and plaster casts of classical statues. Many paintings in the museum's collection have a tragic pedigree: Some were in private collections until they were nationalized after the Revolution; others were seized by Soviet troops in Europe during World War II. The museum's third building houses the Museum of Private Collections, which exhibits touring shows and a permanent collection of works donated to the museum. Note that halls in the Pushkin and other state museums, including the Tretyakov Gallery, are patrolled by vigilant, grossly underpaid elderly women who raise a huge fuss if cell phones are used and object to any behavior they deem inappropriate, such as laughing too loud or standing too close to the art. They melt, however, at the sight of adorable children, so don't worry about bringing your offspring along.

Main Building open Tuesdays through Sundays 10 am to 7 pm (extended until 9 pm on Thursdays, except in the summer).

Gallery open Tuesdays through Sundays 10 am to 7 pm (extended until 9 pm on Thursdays, except in the summer).

Museum of Private Collections open Wednesdays through Sundays noon to 7 pm.

Ticket offices close an hour before the museum.
