The Museum of Russian Art is the only museum in North America devoted to preserving and presenting all forms of Russian art and artifacts. Housed in a beautifully renovated historic building, the Museum’s multi-level galleries provide a tranquil and intimate setting for TMORA’s exhibitions and educational events. Now on view: Women in Soviet Art: focusing on the representation and self-representation of women in Soviet art, this exhibition explores the roles and perspectives of women under the Soviet system from the 1950s–1980s.Jewish Life in the Russian Empire: Exhibited for the first time in 1867 at the seminal ethnographic exhibit in Moscow, the photographs depict a unique record of Jewish life in Tsarist Russia. It tells the story of Jewish communities within the Pale of Settlement, a region where permanent residency of Jewish peoples was allowed. Jewish Life in the Russian Empire will be on display in the lower gallery.

Make sure you go when they have a free guided tour. Russian history helps you appreciate the art. It changes every few months

Excellent opportunity to see samples of socialist realism art from the permanent collection and sometimes great exhibitions of Russian artifacts from private collections.

Excellent art museum. Not too big. Great for a 90 minute visit. I try to go once a year. Free street parking. Near Wise Acres Eatery, an excellent farm to table restaurant.

Very interesting collection of mostly Soviet artists. Something you wouldn't see anywhere else. Enjoyed the brief intro by one of the staff.

The special exhibits, from the samovars to the Matryoshka dolls and a whole lot more, are a special treat and a view of Russia that is not normally seen. Be sure to take a tour with the well versed docents.

Yes. Especially if they like history. Check their website & go on the day/days they offer the free tour.

Sorry, no restaurant in the museum. But there are various kinds of eating places fairly close. I'd recommend calling the museum and asking for a recommendation.

There wasn't in the museum and it's literally next to the highway. The other streets around it were residential. But, I'm sure you could find a few places to eat within a mile or two. Lots of little neighborhood places. Hope... More
