Информация о объекте
The State Russian Museum houses the world’s largest collection of Russian art. The Museum was opened by decree of Tsar Nicholas II in March 1898 and became the first State Museum in the country for Russian art. Visitors to the Museum are presented with a complete overview of the history of fine art in Russia.
The collection has been continually housed in the Mikailovsky Palace, which was built for Mikail Pavlovich, the son of Tsar Paul I.
The Russian Museum has been operating since 1976 as a national centre for the co-ordination of academic and methodological work across all art museums in Russia. In 1992, the President of the Russian Federation signed a decree designating the Museum an outstanding monument of national cultural heritage.
The Museum has since taken over three other palaces in the centre of St Petersburg: the Stroganoff Palace, the Marble Palace and the Mikhail Palace. These palaces are currently undergoing renovation work, although exhibitions of works from the Russian Museum collection continue being staged in these buildings.
