Manors of Moscow Region

The New Jerusalem Museum and Exhibition Complex presents a large exhibition project"Manors of Moscow Region".

The project includes three exhibitions “How castles should be built”, “Museum in the estate” and “Noble nest”, which are united by one common theme and dedicated to a unique phenomenon in Russian and world culture - the noble estates of the 18th – 19th centuries near Moscow.

The extensive funds of the museum made it possible to show homestead life from several angles. Having emerged as a residential and economic complex, the noble estate gradually became an architectural, park and cultural center. The main place at the exhibition "Noble Nest" is occupied by portraits. For the first time, viewers will have access to watercolor portraits of the work of outstanding masters of this genre, most of which have not been previously exhibited or published. Within the framework of the same exhibition, a collection of bead embroidery, a fashionable hobby of the early 19th century, is shown.

Manors near Moscow, as a rule, became a place of accumulation or deliberate gathering of valuable art and historical collections. Paintings by European masters, weapons, porcelain, watches, furniture from manor collections made up a separate exhibition, “Museum at the Estate”.
