Russian Orthodox Church to Regain its Museums

The Russian Orthodox Church is going to revive its own museum network, metropolitan Kliment, the manager of Moscow Patriarchate informs.
Before the revolution there used to be created church museums. I believe it is time for church now to establish closer interaction with museum workers, who have broad experience in preservation and restoration of monuments, and have up-to-date technological tools available. Then church can open its museums again, just like before the revolution- the metropolitan announced at the sitting of the Public Chamber’s Committee for Preservation of Cultural and Spiritual Legacy and the Presidium of the Union of Russian Museums.
