Located in the old Bolshevik chocolate factory, this new museum is entirely dedicated to the Russian impressionism movement. The museum occupies a circular structure which once served as a sugar silo. The building was reconstructed by British architectural firm and opened to public in May 2016 with a stunning private collection of works including the works of Konstantin Korovin, Valentin Serov, Boris Kustodiev and Pyotr Konchalovsky, many of which were returned to Russia from abroad. The permanent collection is located on the underground level along with a superb bookshop. The upper floors house temporary exhibitions dedicated to the impressionism movement in Russia and abroad, and have a lovely coffee shop with delicious specialty coffee.
