Look and listen!

A new joint project of the Moscow Museum of Modern Art and KREMLIN Chamber Orchestra

Every Saturday, from November 28 to December 19, we invite you to spend an original family week-end in our Museum. The program includes: concerts for kids and their parents, the fascinating story of music from Mikhail Rakhlevsky, the KREMLIN Orchestra leader, and a special excursion program with the best guides of the Moscow Museum of Modern Art. During the concert for kids, parents can get acquainted with our collection and current exhibitions.

In the second part of the music program for adults, young music and art lovers will make a fascinating journey through the halls of the Museum in search of «Treasures of Contemporary Art». An unforgettable interactive excursion program, specially designed for our younger guests, will open them a new world of artistic experimentation.

Concerts and tours last from 45 minutes to 1 hour, so neither children nor adults will have time to get bored.

We are looking forward to see you in our Museum!
