Moscow in Photographs of the 1860s — early 1900s. From the cycle “Traveling around Russian Empire”
4 july 2018—13 august 2018
The Russian Museum holds a unique collection representing the photographic image of Moscow in the 1860s — early 1900s. It includes photographs by prominent masters and well-known studios, such as Scherer, Nabholz & Co., Russian Photography in Moscow, A. P. Reinbot, I. F. Barschevsky, I. N. Aleksandrov, M. P. Nastyukov, M. M. Panov, E. M. Simonov, K. A. Fischer, S. A. Baranov, W. Cecatto, T. Mitreiter, and others. 

Moscow-based photographers worked in a great variety of genres and techniques. They created views and panoramas, interior and architectural photographs, scenes of everyday life in the city, gift albums fit for the tsar, and even postcards. They captured landmarks of Moscow architecture that have been long gone and that are still in place today. Taken from different viewpoints, these photographs allow for a thorough study of those buildings, providing us with information on their location, décor, and function. 

Two hundred historical views of Moscow, presented to the broad public for the first time ever, continue the photographic retrospective series “Traveling around Russian Empire” and are dedicated to the 870th anniversary of Moscow. 
Exhibitions
Vladimir Vasilkovsky. To the 100th Birth Anniversary

Vladimir Vasilkovsky. To the 100th Birth Anniversary

17 june—19 july 2021

The exhibition is dedicated to the centenary of the birth of Vladimir Sergeevich Vasilkovsky (1921-2002), an outstanding figure of St. Petersburg culture. He left an impressive mark in the urban environment: modern St. Petersburg cannot be imagined without the buildings and bridges designed by Vasilkovsky. One of the facets of the master's work will be shown in the exhibition - his graphics and ceramics.

The Leningrad Rock Club in Photographs. Celebrating the 40th Anniversary of Its Opening

The Leningrad Rock Club in Photographs. Celebrating the 40th Anniversary of Its Opening

28 december 2020—7 june 2021

The Leningrad Rock Club was established in early 1981 and has become a true center of attraction for musicians whose art did not fit into the Soviet cultural framework. The Leningrad Rock Club was a sign of the era of upcoming changes in the country and even now, after forty years, it is hardly needed to explain what was its role in the cultural and social life of Leningrad and, more broadly, the country.
