Nikolai Rerikh (known internationally as Nicholas Roerich) was a Russian artist from the late 19th and early 20th centuries, whose fantastical artwork is characterised by rich colours, primitive style and mystical themes. This museum, founded by the artist’s son Sergei, includes work by father and son, as well as family heirlooms and personal items.

The artwork is intriguing: Rerikh spent a lot of time in Central Asia, India and the Altay Mountains of Siberia, so his paintings feature distinctive landscapes and mythological scenes. The building – the 17th-century Lopukhin manor – is a grand setting in which to admire the artwork.
