Department of Private Collections

In 2004, the Museum of Personal Collections celebrates its tenth anniversary. Our institution is one of the youngest and most unusual in Russia. Its history dates back to 1985, when the Pushkin Museum of Fine Arts decided to create a Department of Personal Collections. On 24 January 1994, the Museum of Personal Collections opened its doors to the public at 14 Volkhonka Street, in the former mansion of Prince Golitsyn and in 2005 it moved to the specially reconstructed building situated at 10 Volchonka.

The permanent exhibition is laid out over two floors and consists of collections of works donated to the Pushkin Museum by private collectors or artists and their relatives. The artwork is laid out in such a way as to retain the integrity of the different collections, demonstrating the original concepts of those who put them together over the years. The attempt has also been made to reflect the personalities, tastes and individual passions of the various collectors.
