Moscow Museum of Modern Art

A collection founded in 1999 by controversial sculptor Zurab Tsereteli, best known for his enormous statue of Peter the Great on the Moskva River, is gaining respect in a city suddenly enamored with contemporary art. Works by the likes of Picasso and Dalí and, especially, artists from the Russian avant-garde movement form the core of the museum's holdings. Special exhibitions range from retrospectives of eminent Russian émigrés to debut collections to experimental video art to interactive exhibitions. The museum's main building is a restored 18th-century mansion, but there are five other branches that are also in the city center. One ticket admits you to all of the branches for the day.
