The Moscow Kremlin museums plan to expand cooperation with their Chinese colleagues, Rossiyskaya Gazeta reports. According to museum director Elena Gagarina, the National Museum of China proposed the idea of holding an exhibition dedicated to food culture. Residents of Beijing will also see the project on the same topic. The large-scale exhibition will present the traditions of different layers of society: the aristocracy, the ordinary people. In the coming year, about 200 exhibits from museum collections will go to China.

An exhibition about Chinese food rituals in China is expected in Moscow next year, 2025.

The Moscow Kremlin Museums and the National Museum of Oman are also going to hold joint exhibitions.

The first exhibition is scheduled in Russia in the summer. It will take place in the Kremlin and will become part of the Oman Day initiative. Textile and weapon restorers from the Middle Eastern country will come to Moscow for an internship.

The Russian Museum will provide its collection of oriental weapons, which is considered the best in the world. Another area of the exhibition will be incense since Oman is the country of incense. An Orthodox icon of the 17th century and gold church utensils will be brought from Russia.
