The State Russian museum holds the largest collection of fine arts in Russia. It was commissioned in 1895 in the impressive neoclassical Mikhailovskiy Palace and traces the complete history of Russian art, from magnificent 11th century icons to contemporary works. The palace itself which is a former imperial residence built for Grand Duke Michael Pavlovich, is a sight to see as many of the halls retain their original opulent Italianate interiors.

The notable pieces of art are by artistes like Karl Brullov, Simon Ushakov, Ivan Nikitin and many more prominent Russian stalworths. The museum is the instructional centre of art museums of the Russian Federation, overseeing activities of 260 art museums in Russia.
