History of the Museum
The history Of the Museum of applied arts began with the opening in St. Petersburg in January 1876 at the expense of the Russian patron A. L. Stieglitz, the most advanced school of technical drawing in Russia at the end of the XIX century. The Director of the school and the architect of the Museum building, built in 1885-1896, was the famous St. Petersburg architect M. E. mesmacher. On may 12, 1896, the Baron Stieglitz art and industrial Museum was opened in the presence of Nicholas II and Alexandra Feodorovna.
The building of the Museum in Salt town is an outstanding monument of architecture of St. Petersburg during the historicism period. Almost all historical epochs and styles are reflected in the decoration of the Museum's thirty-two halls. After the revolution, the school was closed, and the Museum was taken over by the Hermitage, becoming its first Branch. After the war, the Museum was revived at the recreated school, which became the V. I. Mukhina lvhpu in 1953. The modern exposition of the Museum is a unique experience for Russia in the reconstruction of the exhibition of the art and industrial Museum of the historicism era, which brought together all the "fashionable" design trends of the late XIX century. The Museum features exhibitions of works by students of the school, as well as Russian and Western European applied art.
