The consulting and methodological center of art museums of the Russian Federation

Today the Russian Museum is a research and tutorial centre for all art museums of the Russian Federation, supervising the work of 260 art museums in Russia.

To provide tutorial help to art museums, museum reserves, art galleries, and memorial museums, in 1974, by order of the Ministry of Culture of the Russian Federation, a special department was created in the Russian museum — the Research and Tutorial Department for art museums, now known as The consulting and methodological center of art museums of the Russian Federation

In close cooperation with other museum divisions the department works in various areas:

  • organization of exchange of experience between the Russian Museum, the leading cultural organizations, foreign museums, and museums around the country,
  • professional development of the specialists from regional museums,
  • consulting and tutorial assistance in various areas of museum work
