    The City Museum "Art of Omsk" was founded in February 1991. Its founder and first director was V. F. Chirkov, Ph.D., a member of the Artists Union of Russia. The museum specializing in art and culturology, had a goal of highlighting the richness and distinctiveness of the Omsk cultural environment. The main idea of the museum of art of the city was its inherent unique "spirit of place", expressed in artistic images.

    The foundation of the museum's collections was formed by the works of young artists who were part of informal artistic associations of the late 1980s - early 1990s ("ECHO", "Cross", "SKIT", "Glazunov's Pupils"). In order to reflect the artistic and mythological identity of the city, the museum maintains separate collections, which include artistic education, children's spontaneous drawings, printed matter, decorative and applied art, amateur art, and object and visual art. In addition, a scientific base of primary sources is formed by collecting personal archives, collection of photos and negatives of cityscapes and notable cultural figures, and scientific archives.

    In 2006, the City Museum "Art of Omsk" opened a new branch, the Museum of City Life. The branch is located at 7 Teatralnaya Street in Omsk.
