Museum of the Imperial Porcelain Factory

Back

The Museum is located on the premises of a working porcelain manufacture that was established to fulfill orders of the Emperor’s Court. The collection began in the early XIXth century with a purpose of showcasing development and improvement of the items produced by the factory. After the Revolution of 1917, the plant became nationalized and its mission was to make porcelain for the new society.

Now the museum collection contains some of the finest porcelain and glass pieces created during the factory’s 270-year existence. Besides, on display are items manufactured by prominent European factories and Russian private plants, artefacts from the Soviet time, samples of Chinese and Japanese porcelain.
