A May 2006 trip
to Moscow by Wasatch
Quote: We saw a lot in 2 busy days in Moscow.
As for Moscow, we were happy with those two long days of well-planned bus tours. Moscow (and the very different St. Petersburg) have no relationship to the cities and villages where we stopped in between the two great showpiece cities. 90% of Russia lives outside these two cites, so if you want to get a taste of the real Russia, you must go beyond Moscow and St. Petersburg. Be prepared to stand in lines and wait. It took us 115 minutes to get through passport control.

On our way back, for a quick walk-through of the rest of the museum, we rescued some of our group who were still floundering about trying to find the Impressionist galleries with time running out. If you are on your own, here’s how to find the Impressionist rooms. As you face the entrance to the museum from the steps outside, the Impressionist collection is in four rooms, one room on either side of the center of the second floor above the front door, and then two rooms connecting to the front facing gallery to the right of center.Other than the Impressionist collection, there are some Kandinsky's, Picasso's, and a nice collection of artifacts and mummies from ancient Egypt.
