  • This wonderful collection shouldn't be missed. This is the only museum of it's kind in the country. No matter what Religion or Spiritual practice, this is an intense view into the creation of icons and the measure of Faith. Intriguing, captivating, glorious objects of devotion await. The passion behind this collection will alone impress; be prepared to spend time - there's a lot to experience. I know I will go back soon!
  • There are few museums of such high quality in Central Massachusetts. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable, and the museum itself has many rotating exhibitions, so there's something new to see every time I go. I am really impressed by the number of events the museum holds that provide engagement opportunities for the outside community. If you enjoy Russian history and culture, or just like to learn something new, don't miss the Museum of Russian Icons!
  • Beautiful, beautiful art with richness of iconography that would rival Tretyakovskaya. Of course, Tretyakovskaya has all the originals, but this cozy museum has all the important replicas you need to know. Make sure you allow ample time to walk it slowly and listen to all the fascinating commentary. The museum has a very nice sitting area where you can take a break and have a sandwich with coffee and tea ($1.5 a cup). My only improvement feedback would be the Russian audio guide. The translation quality needs to be improved as well as the sound quality.
  • What a beautiful museum! Tour guides offered, wheelchair accessible, plenty of exhibits for a small building, and a gorgeous, well-curated collection. Well worth a visit and the entry fee.
  • This is an amazing little-known museum. Def worth a stop and an hour or two. It's small but extremely well done and interesting.
