We are deeply sorry to inform you that unfortunately the English version of “Museums of Russia” has become inaccessible. This situation is caused by general reducing of sponsors’ assistance directed onto development and support of our portal (especially of its English part). It’s a pity that most of data of the portal (about 70%) is bilingual. It is stored in server databases but we don’t have possibility to pay to a permanent editor of English version and to developers in order to let them create search mechanisms and put the data onto the pages of our portal.
We call you to support our project!
We’ll be glad to hear from you any advises and suggestions. And only together with you we hope to overcome all the hardship and to give free access to the museums of Russia for the world community.
