FORMER CHOCOLATE FACTORY - PERMANENT EXHIBITION - GUEST EXHIBITIONS
The Museum of Russian Impressionism is a modern Moscow museum which opened 2016 in a beautifully renovated former chocolate factory built 1880. The museum offers a nice permanent exhibition consisting of 70 works of art by well known Russian painters. The building's modern and pure atmosphere is an experience in itself. At our latest visit to the museum, we attended the guest exhibition "Impressionism and Spanish art" which is on until January 26th, 2020. The works were good and we spotted some favorites. Thereafter, we also walked through and enjoyed the permanent exhibition. Both exhibitions are well framed and introduced with short and insightful stories about the art and the times and politics of the period. We stayed for coffee in the museum's coffee shop on the top floor, unfortunately, this time it was too cold to sit outside their wonderful terrace. The museum is in 20 min walking distance from the best food market in Moscow, "Depo"https://www.moscowliving.org/post/depo-trendy-food-court-market
