Within the framework of the Moscow Mayor’s project “Museums for Children”, which was launched on September 1, 2017, Moscow schoolchildren can visit over 100 city museums and exhibition halls free of charge.

Among them are all the museums subordinate to the Moscow Government, and seven private museums: Jewish Museum and Tolerance Center, museum “Lights of Moscow”, Vadim Zadorozhny Museum of Technology, International numismatic club, House-Museum of Matvey Muravyov-Apostol, Museum of Entrepreneurs, Patrons and Philanthropists, Military uniform museum and Museum of Moscow archers “Archers Chambers”

Since August 2018, schools can apply to the SUE Mosgortrans for free transportation of groups of schoolchildren heading to museums

For 3.5 years of the project implementation, about 750 thousand students visited Moscow museums free of charge.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, the work of museums in Moscow was suspended from March 17 to June 16, 2020 and from November 13, 2020 to January 21, 2021. From January 22, 2021, museums and exhibition halls are reopened to the public, including within the framework of the “Museums for Children” project.

To get into the museum for free, schoolchildren and college students need to attach a social card or a Moskvenok card to a reader at the museum’s ticket office.

Students of non-state educational institutions can use a social card or present a certificate of study, certified by the signature of the head and the seal of the educational organization.
