The State Museum of Fine Arts named after A.S. Pushkin is one of the largest museums in Russia, which presents works of European and world art. Its building, built in an eclectic style, is also an architectural monument. The collection of the museum includes about 670 thousand objects of painting, sculpture, graphics, as well as archaeological and numismatic monuments. The museum's collection includes works of European art from antiquity to the 20th century, and today it is the richest museum of European painting in Moscow. Of particular interest are the monuments of Ancient Egypt, the treasures discovered by Heinrich Schliemann during the excavations of Troy, the works of outstanding European artists of the Renaissance and Modern Times - Sandro Botticelli, Rembrandt Harmenszoon van Rijn, Peter Paul Rubens, El Greco, Nicolas Poussin, Antoine Watteau. Museum interiors play an important role in immersion in a particular historical era - the architectural design of the halls ideally matches the exhibits presented in them.
