  • Great Gallery, but I have it frozen. All employees of the Gallery go to feather headdresses. It was uncomfortable to walk due to dubaka

  • Most likely for connoisseurs of this direction. Travelers here do nothing, only tourists and people who ugaraet religion.

  • The most interesting-wooden sculpture gathered from around the Perm Krai. Unique creations of ecclesiastical art. This is a must see. But overall pretty decent Museum

  • Awesome! Twice specially visited in Perm Krai for visiting this gallery ... + went to Kungur, solikamsk, Berezniki, and even before Cherdyni got ... twice! .. Once there was a little ... Pro Gallery read, but seen, certainly exceeded all expectations ... wooden sculpture, so-called "perm bozhki" is, of course, something unique. liked the picture gallery ... but, of course, one cannot fail to notice where the Perm Gallery! in the temple. and it would be better to say so: art saved art ... powerful iconostasis lived to us only because the Museum was opened. surprisingly, the icons, the temple utensils, wooden sculptures from around the Perm region gathered in the 1920s, when everything that was connected with religion destroyed. 1922 year.. temples were destroyed, crosses were dumped. and here is a Savior Transfiguration Cathedral survived! Isn't it a miracle!
