Museum of Glass Art

18 Jun , 10:00–18:30

The Museum of Glass Art is part of the Yelagin Palace Museum, and boasts a unique collection of glass art. The collection is largely made up of works by the Leningrad Art Glass Factory, a leading Soviet-era institution which closed in 1996. The factory museum collection included about 7,000 items. It was saved from destruction and from being sold off thanks to the chief artist of the factory N. Goncharova; the Committee for City Property Management; the Committee for State Control, Protection and Use of Historical and Cultural Monuments; and staff of the Yelagin Palace Museum.
