Russian Museum

We have already seen a ton of artwork from non-Russian artists in the Hermitage but today we were able to see a plethora of works from Russian artists. Emperor Nicholas II created this museum in 1895, and opened in 1989. I was amazed by how many young student groups were touring the museum. There were classes with kids who were 5 and 6 years old and it was incredible to see how captivated and interested they were in the artwork. This museum was another great way to see and feel Russian history through paintings and sculptures.
