Alexander Pushkin State Museum in Moscow
November 26, 2015 19:26

It is Moscow's first museum dedicated to "the Sun of Russian poetry" Alexander Pushkin, and the most famous and richest exposition about the great Russian poet.
In fact, the Alexander Pushkin State Museum is a "world of museums" that incorporates expositions of the head building and its five branches today. Each of them - Ivan Turgenev Museum, Vasily Pushkin House Museum, Pushkin Showrooms, Alexander Pushkin Memorial Apartment and Andrei Belyi Memorial Apartment - is a full-fledged museum with a unique exposition.
The head museum is located in an architecture monument of the early 19th century, the former city estate of the noblemen Khrushchev-Seleznevs.
The exposition Pushkin and his Epoch tells about the life and activity of the great poet, his friends and contemporaries, literary heroes and their prototypes.
The second permanent exposition under the name Pushkin's Fairy Tale presents original items of country life, applied arts and crafts of Alexander Pushkin's time, and illustrations to his famous fairy tales. The second part of the exposition holds interactive game space  for children and is inhabited with characters of Pushkin's fairy tales.
Besides, the main museum building has  halls for temporary exhibition, as well as a concert hall and a conference hall.
In all the halls visitos will see portraits of the 18th - 19th centuries and items of decorative and applied arts. Collections presented to the museum in various years are of special interest. Porcelain and bronze items, art glass and hand-made ceramics, genealogical researches and canvasses by Alexander Pushkin's contemporaries, an open collection of rare antique books — the museum collection has incorporated everything that is somehow related to the great poet.
