Benois Wing (Russian Museum)

  Nab. kan. Griboedova 2 ,   City Centre-1          (+7) 812 595 42 48     more than a year ago
The project of Benois Wing was executed by the architects L. Benois and S. Ovsyannikov in 1910-1912. Originally the building was purposed for different exhibitions of different art unions. It was founded 27 June 1914, but the war which had burst out stopped the construction works for a while, so the building was completed only in 1919. Benois wing was transferred under the jurisdiction of the Russian Museum in early 1930s. Since then the Benois Wing has an especially strong display of work from the turn of the twentieth century, as well as temporary exhibition halls.

For visiting the Mikhailovsky Palace and the Benois Wing and exhibition "Ilya Repin. To the 175th Anniversary of the Artist's Birth" It is not possible to purchase tickets on the site. Tickets only at the ticket office of the Benoit Wing and at the ticket office of the Mikhailovsky Palace
