My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our visit to this amazing museum. There are several icons on display on 3 floors. The special exhibit titled "Imaging the Invisible: Angels, Demons, Prayer & Wisdom" was amazing to see. Many of the icons are very old, and you can get very close to them. There are excellent lighted magnifying glasses throughout the museum so you can get a closer look at the details in the icons. You can choose to have a guided tour or an audio tour at no extra charge. We chose to go through the museum on our own and read the detailed descriptions of the icons. There is a small gift shop on the main level which featured many items that are made in Russia including lovely jewelry and icons. On the lower level, there is a Russian Tea Room where you can get a snack or tea or coffee. For those who have difficulty with climbing stairs, there is an elevator available. We went to the museum on a Thursday when it is open until 7:00 p.m. We spent a few hours here and found the museum to be very enjoyable and educational. We also loved the Gregorian chant music that was playing in the museum.
