The Soviet Union, undoubtedly, contributed immensely to human development but the exhibition tells not only about the history of the Soviet era but also about items, which became its symbols. Visitors will see agricultural tools, devices for beekeeping and fishing, household items. For many, it is a world of memories, nostalgia, a world of youth and childhood. The presented exhibits help to understand how a huge multinational country lived. Here, people’s memories come alive, memories of those whose childhood and youth passed in the Soviet Union. This is the place where young visitors can see the recent past of a great country.

We invite everyone to tour the past and wish you a wonderful future!
