Winter Holidays in the Soviet Era: TMORA Exhibit
From Oksana Voskresensky: Last Sunday I visited an exhibit at the Museum of Russian Art: Winter Holidays in the Soviet Era. I would like to recommend it for children, who could learn about different Christmas tree decorations, and for adults interested in Russian history and culture during the Soviet period. Russian parishioners of Holy Trinity found a lot of things from their childhood in the museum's displays...
If anyone is interested - please let me know (
), and I will request a tour for next Sunday; the guided tour reveals many more details than just the label information on the walls. See the museum's website for more details about exhibits, admission fees, and upcoming events; TMORA offers children's tours (free to children under 14; $5 for other students) on Martin Luther King Day (January 19) and Presidents Day (February 16).
