Why you should visit it
You can come here both for art and for architecture. While seeing the exhibitions, pay attention to the 19th century building inspired by the Venetian Renaissance palaces. It was opened after a restoration on 2011.
If you don't want to visit all the museum, just enter in the lobby to see the de-constructed gondola by the Russian contemporary artist Dmitry Gutov.
