Art Galleries

A crescent moon lights up every night on the birch in the courtyard of the building. Inside are frequently changing installations, contemporary local artists, guest curators and urban photography. It's a good place to wander, in no hurry and without expecting anything from this place. In this case there is a good chance to find something important for yourself! The art space is open from Wednesday to Sunday.

Тульский областной художественный музей

Art Museums

In general, a standard exhibition for provincial museums, but each time there is something appealing. So here too: Russian XIX century, several works by Western masters, cool avant-garde and primitives. The presence of works by Goncharova was pleasantly surprised. It doesn't work on Monday.

The walls of the buildings are decorated with graffiti microphones "Oktava", by the way, the equipment of this production was used by Radiohead and U2. Nice modern space, can't tell you from the capital. Listen to a lecture, a concert, a smoothie.
