Moscow is home to an art museum and public repository of monuments of ancient art. The repository is the world’s largest collection of Orthodox Christian Art spanning the last two millennia. Not only is this the largest private collection but also the greatest considering the artistic scope of its exhibits and is unique in terms of its span. Quite simply, you will not see a greater display of art from this important era, anywhere.
Numbering more than 4500 exhibits and over 900 icons, the museum is a treasure trove of ancient and antique works of art; that opens the eye of the visitor to life and civilisation over the last 2000 years. Displayed in a specially redeveloped building in downtown Moscow, the Museum conserves, restores, exhibits and enables the study of iconography with its critically acclaimed collection.
