Every time I am visiting Murmansk I have to go to this museum. The exhibitions are changing very often and here you can see the art of Murmansk region. I was lucky, I saw the visiting collection from Tretyakovskaja gallery.

There is never much friendliness, and most of the old... More

Our group had an all-too-brief hour or so at this museum on the way back from our cruise of the White Sea. There was a vast special exhibition of, in the main, evocative Himalayan paintings by Nicholas Roerich.
