The purpose of the study is to consider the text of the museum exhibition as an effective tool for intercultural communication. The review of foreign and domestic works shows that multilingual museum exposition helps to develop a dialogue and understanding between different cultures. The author studied the museum labels of the State Hermitage Museum, their grammatical and stylistic peculiarities, which should be taken into account while translating museum texts from Russian into English. It is determined that the grammatical peculiarities of the museum texts are verbless constructions, incomplete sentences, where linguistic norms are violated. The style of the texts of museum expositions is, as a rule, publicistic, some texts also have features of scientific, spoken and literary styles. While translating, the translator should aim to save the meaning and functional style.
