First Underground Museum to Appear in Moscow
The Pushkin Museum of Fine Arts

Russian metro is so beautiful that foreigners call it a subterranean palace, take photos and walking through subway stations as if they are in a gallery. 

      One more reason to visit Moscow metro is the first underground museum, which is supposed to appear in 2016. It will be located on “Volkhonka” - a new station of Kalininskaya line. 

      “Volkhonka” will be built not far from famous Pushkin Museum of Fine Arts, which exposition is going to be presented in the underground. First it was an initiative of museum staff, but then the proposal was supported by the leaders of the station construction.

        The Moscow metro already has an experience of working as an exhibition hall. For example, in September a collection of dolls from Obraztsov Puppet Theatre was opened on “Vorobyovy Gory” station.
