  • The main exhibition is small, occupies the entire second floor of the Museum! Enjoyed the collection of icons, starting with 15 century, in the first Hall of the paint and technology writing icons. In each room description. Many paintings in the Museum of Karelian artists of the 20th century, enjoyed the local scenery of the Republic of Karelia and paintings of Lake Onega. I was surprised that the Museum has several paintings by famous artists Ivan Shishkin, Ivan Aivazovsky, Konchalovsky, etc.! Viewing the exhibit, there are wonderful sense of immersion in the world of pictures, enjoying nature and the world of Karelia!
