We like Roerich very much. So the single disadvantage of this museum is that it is too small. Strongly recommended for Roerich lovers.

What a nice museum. An artist worth knowing. Lived in the US for a while and then moved to India/Nepal. A private home with his art works. Takes about 1-1/2 hours to visit.

A small museum, well known among Russian community. Donations are accepted as an entrance fee. Amazing paintings, you can stand for hours there. The number of paintings is smaller than at Roerich’s museum in Moscow, however some of them are incredible.

They have lots of open space and chairs to sit on, but first call and see if they allow you to draw there. They seemed quite nice.
