About museum

The “Museum-Confectionary of P.P. Shvedov” in Kolomna was opened again 100 years after the last mention of this pastry shop in archival documents. The owners of the museum tried to recreate the exterior of the building, which was constructed many years ago, according to the photos of that time. The historical interior was created and, most importantly, the main fact is that it is a place where sweets were prepared and sold at one time in the past. On the first floor there is a candy shop with marble tables and Viennese chairs, and on the second floor there is a pastry shop dating from the 19th century. Theatrical excursions are also held there.

The entire collection consists of household items, confectionery utensils (pans for chocolate, sweets, and baking), packaging of confectionery products from the 19th – early 20th centuries in the amount of more than 200 items.
