Favorite thing: In XIX century the Estate fell into decline. In 1919 Kuskovo Estate got the status of the State Museum, and since 1938 it was consolidated with the only Ceramics Museum in Russia.

Nowadays the museum possesses one of the richest collections of glass and ceramics from the Antiquity till modern times in the world. The funds of the museum number over 30,000 items of Russian and foreign art, including Italian majolica, Venetian, English and Russian glass, as well as Chinese porcelain. The museum boasts unique examples of Russian porcelain of the 18th-20th centuries.

Working hours: Open: from 16th October to 14th April, 10am - 4pm, from 15th April to 15th October, 10am - 6pm.
