This is a great museum full of Russian art, not to be missed. While it isn't as overwhelming as the Hermitage, you definitely want to devote a good part of the day to this museum. If you're short on time, figure out what you want to see and head to that part of the museum. The first time I went, we started going around chronologically and didn't end up getting to the really neat collection of 20th century Russian art in the far wing of the building.

Directions: visible from somewhere in the middle of Nevsky prospekt...
