About
Located in Minneapolis, Minnesota, The Museum of Russian Art (TMORA), is a member-supported nonprofit organization dedicated to the preservation and presentation of all forms of Russian art and artifacts. The only North American museum of its kind, TMORA features a dynamic rotation of originally curated exhibitions showcasing extraordinary works of art seldom displayed in the United States. Through the Museum’s educational programs and diverse exhibitions, visitors can explore new perspectives on the history, heritage and art of Russia and surrounding cultures.

Through the universal language of art, visitors to TMORA explore new and unique perspectives on Russia, a country with a recorded history that spans over one thousand years. Recognizing the importance of educating current and future generations about Russian art and related cultures, TMORA’s exhibitions are designed to provide our guests with an opportunity to examine important artistic achievements and historical events through the works of the region’s most esteemed artists.

Housed in a beautifully renovated historic building, the Museum’s multi-level galleries provide a tranquil and intimate setting for TMORA’s exhibitions and educational events. We look forward to welcoming you to The Museum of Russian Art, a cultural venue like no other.

History
In early 2004 the Museum of Russian Art acquired the site. Under the direction of Julie Snow, design principal for Julie Snow Architects, Inc., the building has been converted into a world class art museum. The design concept preserves the original architectural character while stylistically distinguishing the new from the old. For example, the new elevator shaft covered in terra cotta tile references the original clay tile roof, while the mezzanine construction is designed for transparency, allowing the art, as well as architectural elements, to be seen throughout the space. The museum-quality environmental systems are seamlessly woven into the structure.

The historic building has a rich history of service and dignity. The Museum of Russian Art continues these traditions while instituting its own legacy of art and culture.
