The Kuskovo Palace and the Ceramics Museum have shared this estate for almost 90 years. During a group tour of the palace, museum and park you will learn about the foundation of the estate back in the 18th century by Field Marshall Boris Sheremetev, one of Peter the Great’s allies, and his son, Russian senator Peter Sheremetev. Peter founded the stunning art collection which is now on display at the palace, featuring tapestry, glasswork, paintings, carved furniture, porcelain and bronze. The Ceramics Museum at the Large Stone Gallery features around 40,000 objects, including antiques from Greece, Italy, Asia and Russia.
