Several hours of real joy and pleasure visiting that place. I really liked that it is not so huge to get tired somewhere in the middle but at the same time - not small to feel unsatisfied afterwards. If you like art and paintings than there is no any objection not to visit it!

It wasn’t the food that inspired me on this short trip to Minsk, it was the artworks of one 19th century landscape painter, Ivan Aivazovsky. His piece “Night at Rodos Island” is sublime. The art works in this large gallery are expansive in period range and scale. There was an exhibit on horses and horse related art works that I found fascinating.

I highly recommend this museum. It has a wonderful collection of portraits of women unequal to most museums that I’ve been to.
