St Petersburg Avant-Garde Museum

The St Petersburg Avant-Garde Museum is located in the mid-19th century wooden house where the avant-garde artist Mikhail Matyushin lived with his poet and artist wife Yelena Guro. Other leading members of the avant-garde movement visited the house, including Konstantin Malevich and Vladimir Mayakovsky. After his death, Matyushin left the house to a literary fund and it was turned into a museum in 2006. Its exhibits detail the establishment, history and various aspects of St Petersburg avant-garde culture, including displays of artwork. In addition, the workshop of Mikhail Matyushin and a room of Yelena Guro have been recreated. The museum is run as a branch of the History of St Petersburg Museum.
