The All-Russian Decorative Art Museum presents a luxurious collection of metal works by Gennady Kubryakov. According to the legend that is fondly told, one day in the early 1980s, a citizen knocked at the museum's records department with a bag through which a newspaper roll was peeping. Introducing himself as Gennady Andreyevich Kubryakov, he said that he wanted to make a gift to the museum and began to carefully unwrap the newspaper, pulling out a beautifully crafted vase in the Russian style. It was a vase by the world-famous firm, on a par with Fabergé, the firm of Ovchinnikov, which today adorns the museum's exposition "Russian Style: from Historicism to Art Nouveau". "I want people to see it. If you exhibit it for two years, I'll give it to you as a gift." Kubryakov gave more than just the vase. In the 1990s, he donated 68 valuable exhibits dating from 1840-1920. These are metal objects of the highest artistic level.

8 december – 21 january
The All-Russian Decorative Art Museum presents the exhibition "What Happens on New Year's Eve" as an old decorated fir tree, where a gilded walnut tree neighbours a painted sleigh, a bright clay toy - with a light porcelain angel. Merry winter games and amusements, the tradition of celebrating New Year and Christmas with the hope for the renewal of the world - this is what connects generations, brings together town and village, countries and even continents. At the exhibition everyone can make a trip to the Christmas fair, look at the performance of foreign "artists", look at glass and cotton toys used to decorate the Christmas tree in the twentieth century, marvel at the works of modern authors who have created a real magic fairy tale in the halls of the museum.
19 june – 30 july
The exhibition "Decorative Art - living beautifully" presents unique exhibits from the collection of the All-Russian Decorative Art Museum. They follow the history and evolution of Russian decorative art from the XIX century to the present. The term "applied art" encompasses a certain dualism: on the one hand, these are everyday objects, surrounding people in everyday life, on the other - art objects.
