About museum

The collection contains 1,500 planers restored and recreated in their original appearances. All planers are in working condition and they are all different. The planers come from Krasnoyarsk Territory, all of Russia, and a dozen countries around the world. The oldest, the Nevbould Samuzl, as experts determined, was made in England in 1750. There are about 150 rare planers with branded metal (knives) from various states, countries, firms and artels. If you wish, you can plane on an old workbench.

The museum’s collection in 2011 was registered in the Russian Book of Records as the largest in the country, and in 2013 in the Guinness Book of Records as the largest in the world. There is a diploma certifying that this is the first Planer Museum.
