How to Celebrate the Holidays With Your Kids, Have Fun and Learn Something

The Jewish Museum and Tolerance Center is located in the famous Bakhmetyevsky Garage, a constructivist structure designed by Konstantin Melnikov and Vladimir Shukhov.

The Jewish Museum and Tolerance Center has set up a truly innovative program for kids and adults from Jan. 3 — 10. Every day and every evening there are excursions of the permanent and temporary exhibits, including Anish Kapoor's "My Red Homeland"; a series of discussions on Soviet history and everyday life; evening film showings — a Frederico Fellini festival! — and a cool program for kids called a Symphony of the Senses. The museum joined up with Hobby World games and developed daily programs that let little people delve into the senses with master classes, quests, games, and excursions.

Some of the activities are free of charge; some are free but require registration ahead of time; and others have fees. The kids' activities range in price from 500 rubles ($7) for a master class to 1,900 rubles ($26) for a full day of activities, including lunch.

Check out the site for a full description of events as well as information on their ongoing exhibitions.

Independent journalism isn’t dead. You can help keep it alive.

As the only remaining independent, English-language news source reporting from Russia, The Moscow Times plays a critical role in connecting Russia to the world.

Editorial decisions are made entirely by journalists in our newsroom, who adhere to the highest ethical standards. We fearlessly cover issues that are often considered off-limits or taboo in Russia, from domestic violence and LGBT issues to the climate crisis and a secretive nuclear blast that exposed unknowing doctors to radiation.

As we approach the holiday season, please consider making a one-time donation — or better still a recurring donation — to The Moscow Times to help us continue producing vital, high-quality journalism about the world’s largest country.
