Vladimir and Suzdal museum-reserve
Vladimir and Suzdal state historical, architectural and art
museum-reserve was formed in 1958 on the bases of the museums and
architectural monuments of Vladimir, Suzdal, Bogolyubovo and
The Vladimir museum was founded in 1854 by the Vladimir
Gubernia Statistics committee on the initiative of its secretary K.
Tikhonravov. At first, it had no building of its own. It was built
in 1900-1903 according to a design of architect P.Begen. The museum
was open in 1906. Local historians A.Smirnov, I.Golyshev, N.Artleben
played a great role in the formation of the museum collections. The
collections of the antiques' repository of St Alexandre Nevsky
Brotherhood and the museums of the Sibirsky and Malorossiysky
regiments, quartered in Vladimir came to the museum after 1917.
Works of art from the nationalized gentry estates and closed-down
monasteries also became a part of the museum.
The Suzdal museum was created in 1923 in the Archbishops'
chambers of Suzdal. From 1958 - Vladimir and Suzdal museum-reserve
was founded with 39 historical and architectural monuments of
Vladimir, Bogolyubovo, Suzdal and with 50097 items of museum
collection. In 1974 on the basis of this museum the amalgamation of
all local historical, art and memorial museums from 8 towns of the
region - the Vladimir and Suzdal state amalgamated museum-reserve -
was founded. In 1989 the amalgamation was disbanded. Only the
museums of Vladimir and Suzdal and the Crystal Museum in the town of
Gus-Khrustalny remained as the branches of the museum-reserve.
