Moscow Cat Museum in Moscow, Moskva River, Russia | Museum | Cat Museum

Millions of people in Russia, as all over the world, love and appreciate cats, keep them with pleasure at homes and are interested in everything, concerning them. Cat is a favourite pet, but besides that it has it's own very interesting story, it has left it's sign in culture and arts.
Welcome to Moscow Cat Museum in Moscow, Central Federal District, Russia.
After an exclusive art-exhibition program in May-June of 1992 many artists were touched by the beauty of cats, and this fact, of course, was reflected in their work. The idea naturally arose to collect the works of art, devoted to Cat, by painters, sculptors, ceramists, graphic artists, and show these works to public.
During the process of art-works' selection for exhibitions, some interesting points were realized. Cats are a very interesting object for the creative person, and everybody can see and understand this creature differently, and this causes something unexpected and surprising in the picture or clay. It can easily be said that every artist has his/her own image of Cat, and this is the very piquancy of the exhibition program "CAT'S EYE".
The success of the Cat Eye presentation led to the establishment of Moscow Cat Museum in Moscow, Central Federal District, the first Russian CAT Museum. It was open in March of 1993.
Collection at Moscow Cat Museum includes paintings, graphics, sculptures, ceramics, batiks, tapestries, suits, dolls, applications, collages, installations of different styles and trends of art, which show the Cat through the eyes of artists; as well as books, photographs, movies, cartoons, postcards, toys and other things, connected with cats. For the present moment there are more then 1500 large-sized works of art in the collection of Moscow Cat Museum, and it is constantly enriched.
At Moscow Cat Museum we collect everything, connected with the Theme of Cat in Art and Life.
We have the unique annual beauty contest "Woman and Cat". The main point of this contest is when the competent jury values the gracefulness and harmony of the pair, woman and cat. The beauty contest is part of a large festival show, the main attraction being women and cats.
We also have a contest with childrens pictures of cats. The best pictures are included in the children collection at the Moscow Cat Museum.
