The Russian Center of Museum pedagogic and Children’s creativity was set up in 1990 during the period of transformation of the State Russian museum into a unique museum and educational complex, including four palaces and a grammar school (The Gymnasium). The Center became the country’s first museum-pedagogical service, realizing its activities in correspondence with the concept of the pedagogical interaction of a museum and the educational system. The Center’s staff organizes and holds conferences, seminars and exhibitions of children’s works.
