Benois Wing (Russian Museum)

  Nab. kan. Griboedova 2 ,   City Centre-1          (+7) 812 595 42 48     16 Jan 2019
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.
