The Russian Museum

[u][color=red]The Russian Museum[/color] [/u]

The first museum in Russia dedicated to Russian art.
It is more interesting to see the art there than in the Hermitage Museum if you want to see Russian artists. There are many historical paintings, fairy tales and landscapes by Russian artists and of Russian subjects.
This is David's favorite museum in St. Petersburg.

115 years since the founding of the State Russian Museum. This museum was the first State collection of Russian art, opened to the public.
This museum was the first public collection of Russian art, open to the public. Decree for its establishment has signed [b]April 13, 1895[/b], [i][i]Nicholas II[/i][/i]. Under the museum was devoted to the Mikhailovsky Palace, which was reconstructed for the needs of the repository. The Russian Museum was opened after almost three years - [b]March 19, 1898[/b]. In thirty-seven rooms were exposed almost two thousand works of art. Basis of the collection were paintings transferred from the collections of the Hermitage, the Academy of Arts and royal residences. Now the State Russian Museum - the largest collection of works by Russian masters, almost 400 thousand items.
