Description:
    The "Kuskovo" Estate, originally owned by the Shremetyev family, is an excellent example of a typical 18th century Moscow residence. The estate was originally designed for receptions, celebrations and other festivities. More than 20 unique monuments of architecture with genuine interiors have been preserved including a Dutch palace, an Italian museum, a church, a grotto and a greenhouse. The buildings are located in a landscaped park in the French style, complete with ponds, sculptures and pavilions.

    The centerpiece of the estate is the Palace residence. Especially interesting is the original planning and ornaments of interiors.

    The Museum possesses one of the largest collections of ceramics and glass from different countries dating from antiquity up to present days. In the Museum's funds we can find more than 33.000 works of Russian and foreign art including specimens of Italian maiolics, Venetian, English and Russian glass; Meissen, Sevres and Eastern porcelain.
