This is an amazing, world class museum. This is a better collection of Russian icon art than what I have seen in Russia! It is just beautiful. I will tell many people about this special place.

What You'll Get


Sight, the workhorse of the five senses, puts in too many hours keeping man from falling in manholes. Reward the most overworked sense with today's Groupon: for $5, you get two admissions to the Museum of Russian Icons in Clinton (a $10 value). Currently featuring Treasures From Moscow—the American debut of 37 rare paintings and artifacts from Moscow's Andrey Rublev Museum—the Museum of Russian Icons is the only place to sneak a first-hand peek at this collection of reverent relics. Inspired by the Byzantine art of Constantinople's Christians, Russian icons tow the line between realism and the fantastic, with vivid depictions of classic Orthodox figures including Elijah's flaming chariot, the crimson robes of St. Paraskeva, and Yakov Smirnoff vanquishing Baba Yaga.

Reviews

The Wall Street Journal and the Boston Globe featured the Museum of Russian Icons. Four TripAdvisors give it an average of 4.5 owl eyes:

  • It’s tempting to attribute Matisse’s response to Russian icons as hyperbole, brought on, perhaps, by the warmth of his reception in Moscow. But when you see the paintings in “Treasures From Moscow,’’ the penny drops. You see how powerfully they chime with Matisse’s radical approach, which like so many breakthroughs in modern culture, harked back to a lost and spiritually noble past even as it pointed forward. – Sebastian Smee, Boston Globe

About Museum of Russian Icons


With the largest collection of Russian icons in North America, this museum gives its visitors a glimpse into an important part of Russian culture in play since the year 998. It houses more than 700 Russian artifacts, and also encompasses a research library and archive with a collection that spans six centuries. Onsite classes let interested parties delve even more deeply into the artifacts’ context and history, and the three-story building’s elevators and other amenities render it fully accessible to patrons in wheelchairs and on unicycles. Today, the museum spans 16,000 square feet and includes an old mill building, though over the years it has expanded to encompass extra gallery space, a tea room, and a performance area dedicated to cross-cultural understanding.
