Many local museums are of great scientific and artistic value. They focus most often works in the region to which it belongs to the Museum.
But there is a meeting with the monuments of the land. This collection of the Smolensk Museum, which emerged in 1888, detailed and full says album.
“Inconspicuous, but deeply pleasing beauty opens before us Russian folk art. Considering the most simple household object from the past, we will certainly find at least some elements of decoration, whether it is a modest painting in two or three colors or simple carved pattern. Sometimes ordinary objects were transformed into genuine works of art. These qualities are evident in the exhibits of Russian folk carved and painted wood of XVI-XIX centuries, which are presented in the collection of the Smolensk Museum-preserve.”
