Five rooms, where the museum’s jewellery collection was located, have been closed for more than ten years with reconstruction going on. Now they are opening, in the beginning of June.
The rich exposition no doubt impresses and tells us about jewellery art development in the 4th and 20th century. It includes memorials found while archaeological digging in Greece and Russia. The jewellery section represents a wonderful collection of works of West European and Russian masters created in the 16th –20th centuries. The base of the collection is the Jewellery Gallery of the Imperial Hermitage.
