About museum

The private ski museum (*do not capitalize words like “museum” unless you are writing the proper name of the museum – please correct this in future translations) was created in 2009 on the basis of the private collection of Oleg Ivanovich Danilov, and includes more than two thousand exhibits. The collection also includes hockey exhibits, hockey sticks, skates, uniforms, and many other things. The museum exhibition tells us about the evolution of skiing, the history of skiing in Russia, the «Kings of skiing,» and skiing in Kargopol. Information stands have been designed for each topic. The exhibits were collected during an expedition in the Arkhangelsk region. This is the first museum in the Arkhangelsk region.

The museum conducts educational tours for tourists and children’s groups, and it provides the necessary equipment for master classes.
