What to Expect
The Russian Museum is the largest national museum in the world, home to nearly 400,000 works of art, from ancient icons all the way up to the renowned Russian avant-garde movement. Meet your private guide at your hotel lobby and head to the museum together before starting your journey through Russia's artistic history. 

The museum building itself once belonged to Grand Duke Michael Pavlovich, son of Paul I, and was purchased by Alexander III at the end of the 19th century to be made into a museum. Today the museum comprises several impressive and ornate buildings. This private tour takes you to Mikhailovsky Palace, which contains art collections from ancient times to the 19th century, and the Benois Wing, where the famous Russian avant-garde collection is on display.

During the tour you'll see masterpieces by some of Russia's most prominent artists, including Levitsky, Borovikovsky, Brullov, Bruni, Aivazovsky, and many more. You'll also have a chance to admire the ornate interiors of Mikhailovsky Palace, a former imperial residence that retains its luxurious charm.
