The State Museum of St. Petersburg was founded on the basis of two collections of other museums of the city's history - the Municipal Museum and the Museum of Old Petersburg. The date of the museum's foundation is 1918.

The Municipal Museum was founded in 1908, his exhibition was dedicated to St. Petersburg and Urban Affairs of everyday city life. The basis of his first collections were gifts presented to St. Petersburg for the 200th anniversary, which took place in 1903. In the future the museum's collection replenished through the exhibits coming from industrial and business exhibitions and from various city agencies.

Museum of Old Petersburg was opened in the same year as the City Museum. His collection includes items from several private collections - vintage photographs and city views, models of monuments and buildings, the original architectural drawings, and more.

Museums have been combined into a Museum of the City in October 1918. The main building of the new museum was given Anichkov Palace. One year later, there was opened the first exhibition - "Moscow and its suburbs" and "Views of St. Petersburg and its environs", "ABC's and children's book," "Toy and its importance in a child's life," etc.

The concept of the museum has changed several times, and under it changed its name. In 1932 it was renamed the Museum exhibition of the socialist reconstruction of the city, two years later he became known as the Museum Building and Urban Affairs. In the future the current State Museum of St. Petersburg has consistently turned into a museum of history and development of Leningrad, Museum of Architecture and the Leningrad State Museum of Leningrad. Its present name only museum acquired in 1992, after returning to its historic name of St. Petersburg.
