Among the many sights of Moscow there is a very original museum dedicated to folk art, sculpture, architecture, painting and graphics - this is the Museum of Russian popular print and naive art, which presents quite unusual exhibits and expositions.

A Bit of History

In the 1980s, in the building where the museum is located today, there was a Museum of Revolutionary, Military and Labor Glory, and later - an exhibition center, on the initiative of the director of which in 2003 the Museum of Naive Art was created. For more than 10 years of work, specialists have done tremendous work aimed at preserving and researching naive art, implemented a lot of exhibition projects of various sizes and established publishing activities. And thanks to many scientific contacts, an extensive collection and a lot of catalog and research materials have appeared.

The building of the museum is also of interest - it is made in the Art Nouveau style, which came to Russia from Europe in the late 19th - early 20th centuries.

In 2013, works of naive art were combined with the works of masters of folk graphics, thereby forming the Museum of Russian Lubok and Naive Art. To date, it has been completely reorganized and has undergone a lot of changes: its area has increased, a new exhibition hall has been added and its own fund has been formed.


The collection of the museum consists of about 2 thousand exhibits in various graphic directions. The works of Lyubov Maykova, Alexandra Ryzhova, Monika Bichyunene, Alevtina Pyzhova, Vladimir Anosov and others deserve special attention.

The museum contains not only graphic and popular prints, but also sculptures and paintings, and at exhibitions you can often meet famous people of art.

There are also extremely rare objects in the museum's exposition - these are popular prints, among which there are more than 70 originals of the 19th century, and reconstructions of popular prints related to the Soviet era: about 200 sheets of the collection of the art historian Dmitry Rovinsky, the Bible of wood engraver Vasily Koren, etc. modern samples of graphics, created with the use of popular prints. In total, there are over 2 thousand of them, and their authors are members of the "Workshop of folk graphics", known throughout Russia.
