  • So many masterpieces in such a small space is nowhere to be seen. One surprise that these outstanding Orthodox masterpieces, we can say the artifacts are in the Museum, rather than in churches. From these icons is an incredible force, waves of heat and light. Eyes of Saints glow good and harsh at the same time. On the skin run goosebumps. But not everyone can afford to pay a pretty high price for entrance to the Museum, especially pray before the relics. Perhaps periodically and alternately display icons in the churches of Yaroslavl and inform believers on the Museum's website? Audioguide totally neinformativnyj. Wasted money! If people came to look at such rare values, provide full details on the history of the icon of Holy or Strastoterpce to whom she is devoted, creation time, about ikonopisce and his school, about Technics iconography this icons, about painting It is written in detail about each brand and even more, that it is important to most visitors. Organize special excursions with detailed information on each icon, calendar of excursions on the Museum site, with writing on them, so that you can come to Yaroslavl on these trips. For this you pay money. But students, teachers, seminarians take excursions free of charge. For our roots and Faith take money shamefully. 5 points put only for collection, but not for the organization.
