In honour of the 40th anniversary of the founding of the State Museum of Decorative and Applied Arts of the Peoples of the USSR in the Tsaritsyno Palace Ensemble, the exhibition “People and Funds” opens in the Grand Palace and the Bread House. It is the collective project of the staff of the Museum and Nature Reserve “Tsaritsyno”. Current and former employees, from caretakers to director, – 43 curators in total – have selected exhibits that reveal their vision of “Tsaritsyno”.

The highlight of the exhibition is its location: each item has a place in different corners of the existing expositions. Guests will have to go through almost a quest: from a “Magic lantern” past a giant window frame or tapestry “Glory to Bazhenov” to a fire brick with an “engraved” rose (yes, so different collections are presented at one exhibition).

Our map-guide will help you not get lost on this winding path, and you will find meanings of the objects and reasons for their choice in the authors’ essays on the connection between an employee, the museum and the exhibit.

Below is a map of the exhibition and a list of curators and their chosen exhibits. Both documents can be saved to your phone in the pdf format.
