The museum is closed on Sundays and Mondays. Running through August 30, Darker Shades of Red: Soviet Propaganda Art from the Cold War Era covers the economic, social, and political ideology of the Soviet Union from the mid-1940s to 1990 through official government propaganda posters.
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.
