About the project
The project “The Russian Museum: the Virtual Branch” has been implemented by the Russian Museum since 2003. The goal of the project is to introduce to a wide audience the values of Russian culture and the historical past of Russia via free access to the electronic materials and publication as well as creation of cultural and information environment among the participants of the project.
At present the project has grown into a network of 209 virtual branches, which are open in museums, educational institutions and centres of further education, institutions of science
and culture - both in Russia and abroad.
