Aleksey Schusev State Architectural Museum

Aleksey Schusev State Architectural Museum (June 2013)

The Aleksey Schusev State Architectural Museum was established in 1934 and was originally located in the Donskoy Monastery. When the Donskoy Monastery was returned to the Russian Orthodox Church in the 1990s the museum was relocated to its present location in the former Talyzin Estate. The museum has a permanent exhibition entitled 'A Future which Did not Happen' which features a model of architect Vasili Bazhenov's vision of the Grand Kremlin Palace, the construction of which was eventually halted by Catherine the Great. In addition to this, the museum also holds several temporary exhibitions, as well as serving as an archive and a research centre.
