Arkhangelskoye Estate Museum – Krasnogorsk district of Moscow Region

The Arkhangelskoe Estate Museum is located in the Krasnogorsk district of the Moscow Region, 20 kilometers west of Moscow. This estate is a unique monument of Russian arts culture. Arkhangelskoe gained the worldwide fame of “Moscow Versailles” owing to majestic beauty of the estate and variety of unique museum collections.

Construction and decoration of the estate are related to the names of architects such as Gern, Trombar, Petondi, Gonzag, Beauvais, and Klein.

The collection of paintings contains works of the greatest Western European artists of the seventeenth - nineteenth centuries such as A. Van Dyck, D.B. Tiepolo, F. Boucher, J. Robert, and others.

The collection of decorative art includes artistic bronze, watches, furniture, and products of the Yusupov’s Porcelain Factory in Arkhangelskoe (1820 - 1830) and major European manufactures of the eighteenth-nineteenth centuries.
