The Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts

The Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts is preparing for its jubilee, according to TASS. The museum marks 105 years since its foundation on May 31. People are welcome to get acquainted with its expositions free of charge at that date. As museum administration explained, the entrance to the museum will open its doors all day long until 8 p.m.

Moreover, an exhibition of historical photographs stored in the archives will work at the jubilee in Gorky Central Park next to the central fountain. The photographs will share the history of foundation and work of the museum as well as stories of the people working there. The museum administration reminded that many prominent scientists and cultural figures worked here.

A special range of souvenir goods such as perfume, candies and others has been produced specially by the Pushkin Museum’s jubilee.

It is worth reminding that there was an anniversary of the founder of the Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts Ivan Tsvetaev last week. He initiated construction of one of the largest museums in Europe. After the State Museum of Fine Arts was opened in 1912, Tsvetaev became its first director. Currently, the collection of the Pushkin Museum consists of around seven hundred thousand various art objects.

We have attempted to “interview” the Bolshevik leader so that he might explain how he related to the tasks of revolution, politics, morality, and other questions that are important to us all.
