Russia embraces a very rich history. For anyone who travels to Russia for any reason or who simply wishes to spend some vacation time in Russia, we recommend a visit to the The State Historical Museum, in Moscow. It is the biggest national museum of history and includes tremendous and unique collections of items connected to history of a Multinational Russia from ancient times into the 19th century.
Once on the excursion, walking in Red Square, you will see the majestic red brick building of The State historic Museum. The museum was built by the accomplished architect Sherwood, in 1874, and now you can see this wonderful example of Russian Revival style.
The Historical Museum was intended to play the role of "vivid Russian history." Monuments and articles were brought to this new museum from all parts of Russia. The idea was that they were to represent the history and culture of all nations living within Russia's boundaries. The museum's depositary was expanded by receiving private donations and input from scientists, historians and archeologists.
Nowadays, the collections have increased in size, very much. While you are there, you would have a unique chance to view the valuable finds of archeologists–ancient Russian icons, manuscripts and black-letter books, Russian and foreign arms, pieces of jewelry, glass and ceramics, national clothing, collections of antique furniture, donated by private estates and much more.
You will also see the personal belongings of Russian tsars and emperors. Personal belongings of Ivan the Terrible, Peter the Great and last members of the family of Romanovs will be on display for you.
You will be shown different manuscripts which are considered to be amongst the most valuable in the world, for the studying early Russian culture. The Museum inventory of fine arts includes more than 500,000 items which are impressive... It is worthy of note, that in the Museum one can find both works of the famous masters and also paintings of anonymous, yet, talented artists, alongside each other.
We are sure you will be impressed by such a huge collection, the rich interior decor and the capabilities of our agency guides and interpreters.
