Click, swipe, and wander. Check out the Gauguins in the next room Courtesy of Pushkin Museum of Fine Arts

The Pushkin Museum of Fine Arts has an excellent virtual museum on their site – actually, it’s five virtual museum collections and seven separate exhibitions. You can wander through the main building of the Pushkin Museum, spend time in the Museum of Private Collections, expand your perception of late 19th and early 20th century European and American art, visit the Tsvetayev teaching museum, or imagine how Svyatislav Richter lived in his memorial apartment museum. If you already have 3-D glasses, you can take a more in-depth tour, as it were.

It takes a while to get used to the system: click on the little figure to move to its position or click on the square by the work of art you are interested in to get a full description in Russian. Once you get the hang of it, it’s an excellent way to spend a quarantine evening at home.

Start here. See you in a couple of hours.
