About museum

The history of the museum began on October 17, 2010, when the Barnabas Metropolitan of Cheboksary and Chuvash blessed the creation of the Church History Museum in Cheboksary at the Church of the Holy New Martyrs and Confessors of Russia in Cheboksary.

The museum’s collection includes church utensils, icons, liturgical vestments of the clergy, and liturgical books. Oleg and Nadezhda Yardykov created the design project of the interior and museum showcases.

Students from the graphic art faculty of Chelyabinsk State Pedagogical University, Elena Abeleva and Nataliya Vasilyeva, helped the owners with the artistic design of the museum. Materials about the pastors and archpastors of our diocese, collected by the parish library, were used.
