Know More about this tour

The tour starts off with you being greeted in your hotel lobby. Enjoy the city's scenery while being driven to the Russian Museum. A private guide will accompany you throughout the duration of the tour. You will also be provided with free compliments such as city maps, chocolate snack, rain coats (in case of rain) and farewell gifts.

The museum building belonged to Grand Duke Michael Pavlovich, son of Paul I. In the end of the 19th century Alexander III bought the museum building from his relatives to establish a museum of Russian art. Alexander III is considered the founder of the museum because the idea belonged to him, although the museum was open only after the death of the Emperor.
