Visit: The Museum of Russian Art, 5500 Stevens Ave, Minneapolis, MN 55419-1933
Your admission ticket grants you access to its three galleries and IZBA gift shop, set in an award-winning architectural space. On your visit you could get up close to works drawn from the largest collections of Soviet-era paintings outside Europe, explore artifacts from the Tsars, or see more Russian nesting dolls - Matryoska - than you've ever dreamed of! Each exhibition is curated from top-quality artworks and artifacts from around the world, and range in time period from Russia's early founding to contemporary works from living artists. Your admission ticket also includes an open museum tour, offered Thursdays at 11am, Saturdays at 11am and 1pm, and Sundays at 2pm
Visitors love the quality of the museum's guides, materials, and galleries, and the option to purchase tea, chocolate, and other Russian delights available exclusively at the IZBA gift shop. The museum's size is manageable enough for one visit, but no doubt you'll want to return to check out the various exhibits on display throughout the year.
