The Museum of Russian Art promotes understanding of the art, people and culture of Muscovite Russia, the Russian Empire, the Soviet Union, its former republics, and post-Soviet Russia through outstanding exhibitions, cultural presentations, and educational programs serving the people of Minnesota and the nation.
A cultural understanding of Russia’s deep, historical, multicultural, and ongoing artistic achievements and their impact on the world.
The Museum of Russian Art (TMORA) is North America’s only museum devoted to exploring the art and culture of Muscovite Russia, the Russian Empire, the Soviet Union, its former republics, and post-Soviet Russia. TMORA presents six or more exhibitions each year, with items from its permanent collection of over 7000 works and Russian art from major collections in the U.S. and abroad. The Museum enhances its exhibitions by presenting subject specific lectures, seminars, concerts, and other unique events, which include independent scholars of Russian culture and other specialties who share their expertise with the TMORA audience. Housed in a beautifully renovated historic building, the Museum’s multi-level galleries provide a tranquil and intimate setting for its dynamic array of exhibitions and programs.
We look forward to welcoming you to The Museum of Russian Art, a cultural venue like no other.
