Roerich Museum

The Roerich Museum is a museum in Moscow dedicated to the life and artistic work of the Roerich family.

From 1989 to 2019, it was in the Lopukhins’ estate, built in the 17th-19th centuries. Since 2019, it has been located at VDNKh park in pavilion No. 13 (formerly the Healthcare pavilion).
