  • The Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts (never could understand why Pushkin and not Repin or Levitan for example) is in Moscow at Volkhonka 12 (metro station - Kropotkinskaya).

    A large place in the exposition is occupied by plaster copies of antique sculptures (actually these copies were the beginning and the basis of the museum's collection), but there are also natural "antiquities", in particular the so-called "treasure of Priam"; (which has nothing to do with Priam), allegedly found by Schliemann in Troy and "saved"; Soviet soldiers from the museum of defeated Germany.

    If the first museum is a literary museum dedicated to the life and work of Alexander Pushkin, where sometimes there are paintings exhibitions. The second one is one of the most significant museums not only in Russia (the second after the Hermitage), but also in Europe and the world. Early was called the Imperial Museum of Fine Arts. It was built on the initiative of a professor at Moscow University Ivan Vladimirovich Tsvetaev (первоначально для хранения коллекции слепков античных скульптур). Большую часть суммы на постройку музея выдал крупнейший в России производитель хрусталя и стекла (завод в Гусе-Хрустальном), выпускник Московского университета, видный государственный деятель Юрий Степанович Нечаев-Мальцов.

    In the 1937 year the Museum exquisite Arts was renamed the Museum fine arts. And on the occasion of large-scale events in connection with the 100 anniversary of the death of Alexander Pushkin, he received a prefix: he was Pushkin.


    The confusion of these museums can also occur due to the fact that Perchistenka Street is a continuation of the Volkhonka. Also it is necessary at an exit from the underground Kropotkinskaya to go not in that party, and you instead of one museum will get to another.


    In the Pushkin Museum Pushkin has both a permanent exposition and a removable one (foreign exhibitions are brought). So you should watch out for poster.

    The permanent exposition includes:

    • The art of the ancient world (from Egypt to Ancient Greece and Ancient Rome)
    • The art of the Middle Ages and Renaissance (including the Italian courtyard with David Michelangelo Buonarroti and medieval knights)
    • European art of the XVIIth century of the XIX century (Rembrandt, Rubens, van Dyck, etc.)
    • The art of European and American XIXXX centuries (Delacroix, Goya, Monet, Renoir, Degas, Cezanne, Gauguin, Van Gogh, Matisse, Picasso, Doren, Rousseau, Kandinsky, Chagall, Rodin)
    • There is a department of personal collections (donated by Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts).
