Orthodox Museums

"The Antiochian Heritage Museum (AHM) permanent collection is designed to take visitors on an enlightenment journey through the Middle Eastern ancestry of the Antiochian Orthodox Church, which is rooted in Paul’s missionary journeys from Antioch, Syria to European sites."
"The Orthodox Church Museum acquires, conserves, researches, communicates and exhibits, for purposes of study, education and enjoyment, material evidence and cultural heritage of the history of the Finnish Orthodox Church. The museum is supervised by the administration of the Orthodox Church in Finland."
  • Andrei Rublev Museum (Moscow, Russia)
"The collection of the museum was arranged from the acquisitions of the expeditions to different regions of Central and Northern Russia. Among the icons found during the expeditions there are some works of outstanding quality, which immediately became the objects of numerous studies and publications. The group of artists who specialized on copying the old frescoes made an important contribution to the museum collection. Thanks to donations and presents, nowadays the museum possesses the large collection of the 14th 19th centuries icons from Moscow, Tver and Northern schools, as well as fragments of monumental painting, early Russian wooden sculptures and copies of old frescoes." -The Central Museum of Early Russian Art named after Andrei Rublev
The Museum of Russian Icons houses an extensive collection of Russian icons created by the collector Gordon Lankton. The icon collection comprises over 340 icons from the thirteenth century to the present and covers almost the entire range of Russian icon images, symbols, and forms. It is one of the largest private collections outside of Russia and the largest in North America.
The monastery museum presents the history of Orthodoxy in North America from its arrival in Alaska through the use of artifacts and exhibits. The museum also includes a collection of icons and antiquities that was donated to St. Tikhon's Seminary by John S. and Lucille J. Guzey. This collection is the largest private Orthodox icons and antiques collection in North America. St. Tikhon's Monastery Metropolitan Museum Tour
