harmony in the frantic pace of the city. In continuation Margarita Mamun will hold

“The professional Museum community in recent years
talks about the need to expand the scope of Museum programs. All recognized that
today, the Museum is not only an exhibition space or scientific environment, but
cultural institution with a wide range of activities. We spend
master-classes, meetings, poetry readings, music concerts.
Project #notjustmuseum will complement the existing programme, new events, we
want to experiment with the format, plot and characters,” says Director
