  • A wonderful Museum. Very good, friendly staff. A session lasts 45 minutes, but it is very informative and interesting. Watched a movie about the creator of the picture "Princess tarakanova" are very curious. Actually the entire Museum is devoted to the canvas. Will be in Penza-go.

  • In October 2016 onwards, I happened to visit the Museum one painting. Was demonstrated in October, incidentally the last of 6 months, painting by Franz Xavier Winterhalter's portrait of Paris-Varvara Dmitrievna Roman-Korsakova. It is stored in the Penza art gallery and is its Pearl. First aired a half-hour film telling about the author of the painting by f. k. Vinterhal'tere, povedavshij biography, "Tatar Venus" and the history of Korsakova works. By the way the creative team created drama Penza, for that they thank you very much. music and video series, created a faithful attitude. Next was a demonstration of the splendid shhedevra. Tears of emotion and delight from watching true beauty and tenderness-this was inevitable, we watched a young woman. -Girly, fresh, lovingly vzirajushhaja on spectators. There is one quote from a book written-Barbara "deprivation and sorrow I pointed out God and luck led to know him". The barbarian is very close to me this! Biographers suggest. that in a fairly riotous youth, filled with balls and entertainments followed a single maturity, most likely conducted in search of the meaning of life and God. The usual story, actually. And early death — 45 — due to heart disease. And eternal memory — thanks to an outstanding portrait F.k. Winterhalter's for their impeccable —, this frantic beauty. Special thanks to the employees of the Museum for presenting the joy and the opportunity to touch eternity. Visit the Museum friends, you won't regret it!

  • I never thought that a visit to the Museum one painting will give me such a profound impression. When I was there, we were shown a film about Russian beauty Varvara Dmitrievna Roman-Korsakova, which had fallen in love with the famous French artist. In vsjakm case, written by painting with great affection. She died, and her son returned to Russia with her portrait. Think about the transitoriness of life and of the immortality of art. Maybe you'll see a different picture. But even the old House will prepare you to ensure that you get a lot of fun.

  • Got a great deal of fun. Interesting concept: detailed history of one masterpiece in the oral statement not guide-art critic, but in the film. Historical facts about the artist, imprinted in the era are accompanied by actor embodiment of the plot of the film. And at the end of the show the curtain is not closed, but opens to the viewer live saw a picture of her drama, prochuvstvovannuju in the film. Technology, of course, has a working resource-sound brings. We were lucky enough to hear "the mystery of antique paintings": Copyright repetition K.d. .flavitsky's "Princess tarakanova" from the collection of the Gallery Savitsky. And a wonderful collaborator of the Museum asked us at the end of the Christmas holidays "homework":-when you arrive in his Moscow, then be sure to visit and see your picture in the Tretyakov Gallery. And then come and tell us what they found differences. Left to go to the Tretyakov Gallery and return the assessment for domashku

  • The only Russian Museum. Ranked third in the world among the museums of one subject-ahead only shroud Museum and Museum of the Moon (London). Chamber atmosphere. Films are made with extraordinary love. I recommend walking around here with children including toddlers is a very intuitive and affordable material and does not tire as an endless walking on art gallery.
