Tretyakov Gallery is the main gallery collection showcases Russian art from the 11th century to the beginning of the 20th century by Russia’s most eminent artists. It includes precious ancient icons, portraits, landscapes, historical and religious scenes, the work of influential groups such as the Peredvizhniki, and trends developing alongside political and social shifts in Russia.
The collection of the Historical Museum contains about 5 million items. It is the largest museum collection in Russia. It is practically impossible to get acquainted with the entire exhibition in one go: if you read all the descriptions and spend more than a second studying each object, two months would not be enough. The museum holds rare monuments of Russian history and culture: from paleotic axes and mammoth tusks to the pen of Alexander II. The main exhibition is divided into two parts: the ground floor of the museum houses artefacts from before Peter the Great’s time, and the first floor contains artefacts from after Peter the Great. The museum also organises lectures by leading researchers.
