The artistic part of the exhibition includes 39 paintings and graphics from the Museum’s funds. The exhibition presents works by artists whose artistic heritage is the pride of Veliky Novgorod: D.V. Zhuravlev, I.I. Kushnir, G.M. Shtender, S.I. Pustovoitov and others.
Do not miss the opportunity to visit the most unusual museum of Veliky Novgorod – the Porcelain Museum. This exposition is the presentation where the history of Novgorod porcelain and technology are intertwined and multimedia “miracles” are combined with author's installations. The exposition joins the brilliant historical past of Kuznetsov’s porcelain with the Soviet period – production of china-ware with cobalt coating, which became a the hallmark of Novgorod Land masters.
Here you will not only learn the secrets of porcelain production, but your whole family will be able to feel like masters of porcelain painting!
The Museum Cultural Center is a structural subdivision of The State Arts and Culture Museum of Novgorod Land and it is located in the building of the former Travel Palace in Korostyn Village, Shimsky District, Novgorod Region.
The Travel Palace is the only significant object in terms of history and culture located on Veliky Novgorod – Staraya Russa highway.
The main advantage of the Museum Cultural Center is not only the building of the Travel Palace, built in the 19th century for the residence of the imperial persons, itself, but the place of its construction successfully chosen by the architect. The building fits well into the local picturesque landscape, and a nice panoramic view opens from the museum balcony.
Nowadays, there is the permanent exhibition dedicated to the history of the area, to the conclusion of the peace treaty between Veliky Novgorod and Moscow, and to the clay toy of the Novgorod region.
In the halls of the Museum Cultural Center works of artists and photographers are presented, as well as an exclusive model of a unique geological monument - the lake Ilmen clint. With the help of the model, you can see Lake Ilmen in all its beauty as well as learn how this place looked more than 400 million years ago, thanks to copies of the prints of flora and fauna.
There are all kinds of fine art and the history of 25 Novgorod monasteries in one place.
It is the most unusual museum in the city; it tells the history of porcelain and its technology, multimedia “miracles” and author's installations.
The history of the peace treaty between Novgorod and Moscow and the history of the unique geological monument – the lake Ilmen clint – is told in the Museum Cultural Center.
Exhibition project Geography of Novgorod (until January 30, 2022)
The majority of the exhibits comes from the private collection of Alexei Finikov (St. Petersburg); the works of Novgorod authors from the Museum’s funds supplement the exhibition.
The exposition includes several thematic sections.
Maps of Moscovy, Russia and the Russian Empire of the XVI - XVIII centuries represent the section The Point on the Map. This part of the exposition includes rare exhibits: the originals of some of them are absent in the museum fund of our country.
The Center of the Earth section is filled with maps of the Novgorod lands, the Novgorod viceroyalty and the Novgorod province, dated to the XVII – XIX centuries.
In the Streets and Crossroads section you can see plans of Novgorod in the XIX – XX centuries, and the Image of a Place section allows you to watch the views of Novgorod in the XVII - XXI centuries, which are on engravings, lithographs and graphic works.

The unicity of the exposition The Porcelain Museum is that the elements of the porcelain production line, elements of a museumized porcelain production, a collection of Novgorod porcelain and archival materials are presented here in a common space.
In addition to a large porcelain collection, the real factory equipment is also present here. Modern multimedia technologies allow you to travel to the factory floor like a time machine.
For example, a “disappearing” pre-revolutionary door will allow you to see one of the workshops of porcelain production: its interior, equipment, technology. Here everyone can watch what is happening with the product in the oven by looking into the pyroscope.
