49 years ago in the newspaper “Evening Leningrad” an article was published: “Invites” Coffee House “.

At that time, the directorate of the museum “Summer Garden and the Palace-Museum of Peter I” was located in the Coffee House of the Summer Garden. Also in the premises of the pavilion, mass cultural work was carried out with visitors to the garden. Various exhibitions, meetings with art historians, artists, composers, historians and collectors were organized.

An article in the newspaper tells about one of these meetings, which was dedicated to the 100th anniversary of the birth of Fyodor Ivanovich Chaliapin. And before that, on February 8, an exhibition of works by the artist Vladimir Mikhailovich Sudakov opened in the Coffee House pavilion.

Enjoy your walks in the gardens of the Russian Museum!
