Academy of Fine Arts Museum


In January and February the entrance to the museum is available from the 3rd line of Vasilievsky Island (3 liniya V.O.)

Museum of the Russian Academy of Arts houses a unique collection which includes graduation projects by the students of the Academy. It gives an interesting insight into St Petersburg artistic education of the past, as studying in this institution was almost required for a successful career of an artist, back in the XVIII century. Looking at the works of both students and their teachers, a visitor can trace their first steps on the way to perfection.
