The Russian Museum will not be closed during the reconstruction
It was only necessary for Petersburgers to be afraid that one of the main museums in the city would become unavailable for several years due to repairs, as the general director of the Russian Museum Vladimir Gusev hastened to reassure everyone. In his appeal, he stated that the museum would not be completely closed until the completion of repair work, and only the main entrance and the first floor would be closed.
Gusev stressed that during the repair only the style will change to make the museum more functional. So, it is planned to add exhibition halls and observation decks in the place of attics, as well as to acquire a conference hall with 100 seats.
