The NDP History Museum was founded in 1939 - four years after the decision was made to build the Norilsk Combine. In 2016, the Norilsk Art Gallery, opened in the city in 1973, joined the museum. For more than forty years of its history, its art fund has grown to more than five thousand works. It gives a fairly complete picture of the various schools and trends in Russian fine arts of the second half of the 20th century. The "Golden Fund" of the gallery consists of the works of the members of the Academy of Arts of the Russian Federation, folk artists E. Bragovsky, A. Gritsai, V. Efanov, G. Korzhev, E. Kibrik, P. Ossovsky, I. Obrosov. Museum website.
