Málaga is becoming more and more known as a culture city with exciting art museums. It already had the Picasso, CAC and Carmen Thyssen Museum. In my last post of March I wrote about the opening of the Centre Pompidou there.
But during March month another art museum was inaugurated, which is called ‘Collections from the Russian Museum’. Most of the goods came from the Russian Museum in St. Petersburg, which has one of the largest collections of Russian art The permanent exhibition is called “Russian art in the period XV-XX” and contains amongst other icon paintings from the XV period. From the avant-garde art period there will be shown paintings from Kandinsky and Chagall.
This exhibition can be seen until November 2015. The temporary exhibition is called “Russian art on Diaghilev’s time” can be seen until September. Diaghilev was the founder of the Russian ballet and arranged also art exhibitions. The Russian Museum is located in the old renovating Tobacco factory in Málaga, also called “Tabacalera”.
It is next door to the Automobile museum “Museo Automovilistico” so why not visit both museums on the same day. The address is Av. Sor Teresa Prat, 29003 Malaga and it takes only 10min. by car from Málaga airport. The admission price is EUR 8,00 for both the permanent and temporary exhibition and there will be free admission every Sunday afternoon from 4pm until closing time.
