Perhaps the finest collection of Russian Icons outside of Russia itself, displayed on three levels of this jewel of a museum. I visit at least once every year, not only to study their permanent collection, but the temporary and traveling exhibitions that the museum hosts. For those in closer proximity to Clinton, MA, the museum also has educational programs and events. If you have the time, the historic parts of Clinton are also worth seeing, a place once renowned as a center of innovation and production of woven textiles. That industry is gone, but the town is worth exploring.
Stunning Russian Icons. Also a photographic display of the founder's motorcycle journey from Europe to Japan. There was a temporary exhibit of WWII posters at the time I visited. Helpful staff. Beautifully meatless in central Massachusetts.
This is a great little museum! Very specialized- you won’t find a mishmash of objects here. It’s about 80% Russian icons, most of them dating from the 15-19th centuries, but also a few older ones and some other interesting liturgical objects. The museum does a great job of giving you just enough information about icons, what they mean, and how they are made to make it really interesting but not so much that it’s overwhelming. There are also children’s programs. Don’t be afraid to ask questions- the people at the front obviously love the museum and are happy to help. Highly recommended! This place is a gem!
What a fantastic museum located in Clinton, MA. The largest collection of Russian Icons available for viewing by the public outside of Eastern Europe. There are fantastic peices on display plus an ever changing temporary exhibition!!!
A lovely find in an unexpected place. Small but could spend hours. Tour with Joann more than interesting and informative. Could have stayed longer but had prior commitment.
