Museum of Moscow

Artyom Geodakyan/TASS

The core collection consists of the exhibits that were on display in Moscow's pavilion at the National Exhibition of Arts and Industries in Nizhny Novgorod from the late 19th century on. Exhibits have been added consistently, so now the collection lists close to 800,000 items, including valuable archives, clothes, household objects, books, coins, paintings, and much more. The museum holds exhibitions all the time, and offers several educational programmes for children. The museum is located in the building of the former food warehouses, an important Empire style landmark, designed in 1835 by Vasily Stasov for the Provisions Authority.
