State Russian Museum Visit
The State Russian Museum has one of the finest collections of Russian art through the centuries. Housed in the Mikhailovsky Palace buildings, take a journey from ancient classics to contemporary designs.
The Benois Wing is home to 20th century art, and the Mikhailovksy Castle has an expanding collection of Russian sculpture from the 18th to 20th centuries. The fine buildings of the Stroganov and Marble Palaces are worth a look for their extravagant halls and ornate decoration, as well as their large collections of porcelain.
