Orthodox Museums

  • Heartland Orthodox Christian Museum (Topeka, Kansas)
"Museum focusing on Orthodox Christian piety, art and heritage, sponsored by the Heartland Orthodox Christian Council of which all Orthodox parishes and missions in Kansas and the KC Metro Area are members."
"The Orthodox Church Museum acquires, conserves, researches, communicates and exhibits, for purposes of study, education and enjoyment, material evidence and cultural heritage of the history of the Finnish Orthodox Church. The museum is supervised by the administration of the Orthodox Church in Finland."
  • Andrei Rublev Museum (Moscow, Russia)
"The collection of the museum was arranged from the acquisitions of the expeditions to different regions of Central and Northern Russia. Among the icons found during the expeditions there are some works of outstanding quality, which immediately became the objects of numerous studies and publications. The group of artists who specialized on copying the old frescoes made an important contribution to the museum collection. Thanks to donations and presents, nowadays the museum possesses the large collection of the 14th 19th centuries icons from Moscow, Tver and Northern schools, as well as fragments of monumental painting, early Russian wooden sculptures and copies of old frescoes." -The Central Museum of Early Russian Art named after Andrei Rublev
