Description of State Russian Museum

State Russian Museum is the first and largest museum of Russian art. It contains a large collection of Russian paintings, sculptures, works of folk art from different periods of Russian history. State Russian Museum is located in the Mikhaylovskiy Palace that was constructed in 1819- 25 under supervision of architect Carlo Rossi under orders of Grand Duke Mikhail Pavlovich. This Neo- Classical residence was in private possession of various members of Romanov family until the late 19th century. In 1898 Tsar Nicholas II dedicated parts of Mikhaylovskiy Palace to a collection of Russian art that became known as State Russian Museum. Today it contains a huge collection of some of the best examples of Russian artists, sculptures, and etc that are also located in Mikhaylovskiy, Stroganov and Marble Palaces.
