The museum was established in 1924. Its collection is unique and diverse. It consists of works of European art of the XVI-XIX centuries: canvas of artists of Italia, Britain, France, Spain and Denmark. The works of Russian painters - Venetsianov, Aivazovsky, Kramskoy, Shishkin, Levitan, Vereshchagin, Repin – is also widely represented. A collection of the decorative and applied art deserves a particular interest. Its uniqueness is explained, to a large extent, with the presence of gold items which dated back to Scythian-Sarmatian period. This is a rarity for Siberian museums. Russian iconography of the XVII century - early XX century is presented by the icons made in the European part of Russia, the Urals and Siberia.
