About museum

The museum is located in the historic city center.

Its main advantage is that it is located directly in the building of the UAR-FAC organization “Dymkovo toy”, where one of the most famous clay toys in the world has been created for several decades. This allows the visitor to not only take a fascinating tour, but also meet a craftswoman and see how a toy is created from a lump of clay in the skillful hands of a master.

The museum has a large and constantly replenished collection of Dymkovo toys (more than 1000 exhibits), as well as a rich archival heritage of the craft (documents, photographs, etc.).

In addition to the permanent exhibition, the museum hosts interchangeable thematic exhibitions related to various fields of art.

The museum services include:

– a meeting with a craftswoman

– an excursion for visitors of any age

– films from various years about the stages of the development of the Dymkovo industry.

These services are suitable for visitors of any age and social status!
