Museums and exhibitions in Saint Petersburg 2019 winter.

by Leonid Sakharov

Saint Petersburg at winter time offers not too much for visitors. Museums are good for warming up and education. Hermitage is among very top art collections. Military museums are impressive. Newly open museums give fresh taste of new culture. Tropical plants in green house are eye candy. The |Museum of UnTruth is point of interest for any sci-fi fan.
The entrance into Winter palace that is the home of Hermitage museum.
The lobby and main stair in Hermitage.
The grand staircase in Hermitage in Hermitage. It is marble and grandiose.
The statue of chief Greek God Zeus. It is as impressive as anybody could be.
The throne of Imperator of Russia. For observation only.
The Peacock Clock in Hermitage is impressive and still the mystery for me from childhood. Long story short never saw it in action.
The painting of Leonardo da Vinci Madonna Litta belongs to few pieces of art these are priceless now literally nobody will sell it ever. Without it Hermitage would lost big part of its charm.
The painting of Leonardo da Vinci Benois Madonna always makes me blue. She is too young. That is all.
The great singer of freedom Voltaire had posed to the statue shortly before death. He projects image of somebody who knows more than you and me. Did he really?
Big wall mirror permits to make selphy.
Part of Hermitage collection is moved to the near by buildings around Palace Square.
The landscape of Claude Monet is the visit card of impressionism.
The painting dance of Henri Matisse looks not quite natural until you could see sculpture at Key Wes Florida that gives the same story in 3D presentation.
The sculpture of dancer putting stocking on by Edgar Degas.
There is also modern art composition in new location of collection of Hermitage. There is Leonardo phrase on the wall. No painting there, only caption. Ok I get it. Author is mocking visitors who instead absorbing art reading description for false sense of education. Nice. But it is not about me and I donít like puffing off superiority. What for? Nevertheless this mocking was sold.
The entrance into new location of modern art of Hermitage is artwork by itself. Well like inside dark yard of old Saint Petersburg is presented here in sort of attractive manner.
The military museum in Saint Petersburg has tricky working hours. Exact when I spontaneously wanted to visit it walking nearby at rare sunny day there were sort of technical monthly day off.
Botanical Garden in Saint Petersburg is the special place at winter to get a little warm. There is start of tropical excursion along prolong connected green houses.

I did passing Sadovaya St., 34, St. Petersburg, Russia and saw the poster The Museum of UnTruth. The title does not complete adequate description of the exposition. Mostly there are replicas of famous artifacts. It is of course the oxymoron. How one can replica of imaginary object. Exactly why it called untruth. Here is mythical chupacabra.
The corpse of the alien crushed in Roswell with his UFO.
The living without body head. The original story is taken from Professor Dowell's Head 1925 science fiction by Alexander Belyayev. It is rather scary story I can tell you.
The spire of Destiny and Holy Grail can be seen here together.
There is whole room with Time Machine standing in the center. The room is extraordinary detailed reconstruction from the movie.
An invention of Tesla to transmit electricity via air without wires is implemented here. The image depicts the true event. It is me with lamp here near generator. Lamp is not connected to any wire. Microwares do the trick.
