About museum

In our activities, we support and develop what we sincerely love and respect – the Slavic culture. In the 21st century, it continues to be relevant: in the era of globalization, successful people are those people who are sensitive to their history and native spirituality!

Everything that guests see within the walls of our museum is truly unique. Past centuries and the worldview of our ancestors are reflected in paintings of modern artists, and find new life in each of the exhibits.

The life of a modern person is one of constant movement and development. He can keep up with everything, can cover several areas of activity at once, and achieve success. However, in order not to lose our way, each of us must have a strong character, formed views, native concepts of good and evil, and harmony with ourselves and cosmic cycles!

The museum’s activities include the organization of temporary exhibitions, excursions, masterclasses, thematic events, holidays, and meetings. The museum also participates in research projects, inter-museum competitions, and grants.

The First Museum of Slavic Mythology is an alternative socio-cultural project based on a private art collection. These are original easel paintings, drawings, and works of domestic decorative and applied art, based on Slavic history, mythology, epic tales, Russian fairy tales, and customs. We collect, exhibit, and promote the works of contemporary artists who continue the tradition of national romanticism: V. Vasnetsov, I. Bilibin, N. Roerich, and so on. Nowadays, the museum is a modern equipped building, which has three floors and includes:

– “Original Rus” permanent exhibition and “Creative Workshop”;

– Temporary exhibition hall;

– Conference hall;

– Roof, where there is a space for concerts and another event called the “Clear Sky”;

– Gift shop.
