First Russian Animation Museum Opens in Moscow

Russia’s first Museum of Animation has been opened in Pavilion 84 of the All-Russian Exhibition Center.
It is the first and the only museum in Russia that is dedicated to this kind of cinematic art.
“The museum presents original models, sketches, dolls and scenery. Some of the exhibits are over 50 years old, and most of them date back to the period of blossoming of Soyuzmultfilm Studio”, the press-service informs.
Altogether the museum has more than 1000 exhibits. Animation Museum means not merely exhibits. It is an informative digression into the history of world and national animation. Every hour group excursions are held here with demonstration of animated cartoon films and a documentary film on the history of Soyuzmultfilm Studio, as well as master classes.
