About museum

The Museum of Russian Culture (permanent exhibition) presents a collection of traditional, folk, and contemporary visual art (the permanent exhibition displays 200 to 300 artifacts). The collection contains artworks from the 15th-20th centuries, material and spiritual culture of Central Russia, numerous artworks of renowned painters, graphic artists and sculptors from Russia and abroad, and sculptures from L.Feodor’s collection.

The main focus of the collection is on the artworks dedicated to The Tale of Igor’s Campaign, a masterpiece of Old Russian and world literature and culture. The heroes of the Tale, mythological characters of Slavic and Russian spiritual culture, are represented in graphics, paintings, polychromatic relief, and sculpture, as well as in modern forms of contemporary art such as assemblage art and art objects.

This is L.Feodor’s creative work over more than 40 years. Apart from the Tale, the museum displays artworks reflecting historical figures and key events of the 10th-20th and even 21st centuries.
