The museum and exhibition complex of the Moscow region "New Jerusalem" has a permanent exhibition entitled "NEW JERUSALEM as Historical and Cultural Monument of XVII-XX centuries". It is spread over an area of 1500 sq. meters and talks about the idea and realisation of the image of the Holy Places in the Moscow region, on the role of the Voskresensky New Jerusalem Monastery as a monument of Russian architecture, Russian history and culture, in this context, the identity of Patriarch Nikon.

The concept of the permanent exhibition "New Jerusalem - as Historical and Cultural Monument of XVII-XX centuries" was approved at the enlarged meeting of the Academic Council in September 2017, which was attended by Deputy Minister of Culture of Moscow Region Nadezhda Zhilkin, CEO of the New Jerusalem museum Vasily Sergeyevich Kuznetsov, governor of the Voskresensky New Jerusalem monastery Archimandrite Theophylact, rector of the Holy Martyr Clement, Archpriest Leonid D. Kalinin, as well as art historians and the members of public.

Among the key items of the exhibition - parsuna "Patriarch Nikon with the brotherhood of the Resurrection Monastery", which depicts Patriarch Nikon standing on a cathedra in full priestly vestments during the service. Many of the items painted in this unique portrait  exist up  to this day, some of them are mentioned in documents. The ones on display are: Panagia (the symbol of the bishop with the image of Our Lady), which we see on the portrait of the patriarch, coral white rosary with rubies. The crosier depicted in the portrait of the patriarch exists as well with some alterations made in the XVIII century. The sakkos found in the church fabrics collection of the museum "New Jerusalem" has been recognized as the one illustrated in parsuna.

Permanent exhibition opens to the public the unique relics and allows to look at them from a modern point of view. A real model of the temple of the Holy Sepulcher of the XVII century, a facsimile stamp of Patriarch Nikon and many unique exhibits can be seen in the multimedia space, saturated with solid models, holograms and other augmented reality technology.
