"The formula of Moscow" and "the twentieth century. The voices of the city". Visitors can admire the well-known works of Simon Ushakov, V. Surikov, Boris Kustodiev, A. Lentulov, V. Polenov and unfamiliar paintings by A. Vasnetsov, V. Perov, V. Makovsky, I. Nikolaev, A. Deineka, A. Labas, K. Yuon, E. Vakhtangov, V. Brainin, T. Nazarenko, N. Nesterova and others. Many of the paintings have not been exhibited before, some of the paintings have been restored especially for this project.

One of the "highlights" of the exhibition was the opportunity to hear "voices of the city": together with experts in various fields were created audio installations, "voicing" the main works of the exhibition and allowing you to take in the sights of Moscow from different eras.
