Pushkin Museum of Fine Arts

This stately museum has amassed over 600,000 artworks since its inauguration in 1912. It was envisaged as an educational institution, and was initially filled with plaster casts of sculptural masterpieces along with a world-class selection of Egyptian relics. The Communist policy of nationalizing private property brought many new artworks to the museum; it was further boosted when the government transferred thousands of pieces to it from St Petersburg’s Hermitage and Moscow’s Museum of Modern Western Art. The museum’s excellent collection of Impressionist, Post-Impressionist and Modernist art is housed next door in the Gallery of European and American Art of the 19th–20th Century.Ulitsa Volkhonka 12 • 495 697 9578
