This is a great little museum! Very specialized- you won’t find a mishmash of objects here. It’s about 80% Russian icons, most of them dating from the 15-19th centuries, but also a few older ones and some other interesting liturgical objects. The museum does a great job of giving you just enough information about icons, what they mean, and how they are made to make it really interesting but not so much that it’s overwhelming. There are also children’s programs. Don’t be afraid to ask questions- the people at the front obviously love the museum and are happy to help. Highly recommended! This place is a gem!
Surprisingly interesting. Nice that they provide magnifying glasses to look at the more detailed pieces. Tea room is nice with various Russian snacks. Free parking is no problem, and building is across from a nice park w/fountain. Jail cells in lower level are a cool touch.
