The first museum in Russia dedicated to Russian art.
It is more interesting to see the art there than in the Hermitage Museum if you want to see Russian artists. There are many historical paintings, fairy tales and landscapes by Russian artists and of Russian subjects.
This is David's favorite museum in St. Petersburg.
