About museum

Being engaged in icon painting since 1986 and teaching children and adults the secrets of icon painting, mosaics and “carving the icons from wood”, Vladimir Kobzar, restorer and iconographer, decided to open his own museum, dedicated to church art. You will have an opportunity to see his own work, the work of his students, and the authentic historical relics in his museum.

The exhibition hall was opened in the summer of 2015. Vladimir Kobzar’s activity was blessed by the Metropolitan Klement of Kaluga and Borovsk, and previously by Alexy II, Patriarch of Moscow and all Russia.

The museum’s collection is housed in the restored basement of the 18th century building. The main exhibition consists of 700 works: iconography, mosaics, woodcarvings, tapestries, gold embroidery, metal minting, and so on.
