Greetings to all readers of my review! It’s been more than a month since we got back from our little trip to the Urals, but the reviews are written very slowly, now one thing is missing, now another. The Stone Art Museum was on my list.
It’s beautiful, but you can’t take pictures, and there aren’t many antique jewelry pieces.
The Museum of History of Stone and Jewelry Art (Ekaterinburg, Russia) visited the whole family, it is located at Lenina 37. There is a lot of things which upset me – you should not take photos and video. I am faced with this for the first time.
I was a little disappointed.
On another vacation, which I spent in my hometown of Yekaterinburg, I tried to get out to at least a couple of museums. And I managed to do it. About one of such informative places I want to tell you – this is.
This is a surprisingly interesting exposition.
The Museum of History of Stone and Jewelry Art in Yekaterinburg, we visited at my dad’s desire. And we did not regret it! The museum ticket costs 250 rubles per person, and there are discounts for schoolchildren and retired people. It is interesting that the usherette does not offer herself.
There are three floors of masterpieces in the heart of Yekaterinburg.
The museum cozily and spaciously settled down in an ancient three-storyed mansion a stone’s throw from the well-known Plotinki – the historical center of the Ural capital. There are three floors in the museum, all three floors contain the real masterpieces – works.
I think that now it is difficult to surprise anyone with museums, because our museums in Russia are usually associated at once with some smelly, dust-covered stuffed animals, whose eyes speak quietly for themselves: “Save.” That’s why visiting museums.
The most beautiful stones of our Urals!
In January this year we were lucky to visit the Museum of Stone Cutting and Jewellery Art in Yekaterinburg. The beautiful two-storeyed building is located in historical part of the city. It was created rather recently in 1992. I think everyone knows about it.
It’s time for us to go to the stone-cutting shop in Yekaterinburg.
Good day! Today we have planned the next visit to a museum – this time we are going to the well-known local museum of stone art. We will begin with the figure of the Mistress of the Copper Mountain. The author’s vision.
Amazing world of stone!
Ural and stone-cutting art – two inseparable concepts, therefore to visit Museum of history of jeweler art in Yekaterinburg means to make a wide and useful step in deep knowledge of the city, its history and trades. And to be honest, I don’t.
Treasury of the Urals
There are few women who will refuse to look at the jewelry. But for me, this museum was also attracted by the mystery that envelopes the Ural Mountains with their treasures and legends. I grew up on the tales of Bazhov.
Beautiful treasures of the Urals.
This museum is located in the heart of Yekaterinburg, next to the dam. Went there recently with the class of a child. There are 9 exhibition halls, 3 floors. There are 3 floors, you can walk around admiring the works of art, or you can take a tour.
Boring and boring.
Not so long ago we visited the Museum of History of Stone and Jewelry Art. The price for admission is average in the city. We did not want to take a tour, we decided to walk around by ourselves. There are a lot of rooms, the museum is located on two floors. Most of the rooms are there.
I really liked it at the museum, were there with my family were all in awe of what they saw. We will definitely go again, I advise everyone to visit this museum, you!
