Founder / Owner of the museum
Ivan Vladimirovich Mikhailov
The collection, which nowadays has more than 120 exhibits, has been collected by Vladimir Vasilievich Mikhailov, general director of the “Dina” holding company, for more than 20 years. The “Moskvich-401”, which Vladimir Vasilievich accidentally saw on the road, was the first car in this collection. His love for cars and trucks started when he was a child, when his father first allowed him to drive a “HA Z” truck. From that point onward, cars became for him not only his hobby, but also the business of his life. Vladimir Vasilyevich passed away on August 19th, 2016, and his son Ivan Vladimirovich Mikhailov continued the family business.
The exhibits, including motorcycles, bicycles, tractors, and military equipment, were collected by a team of like-minded people all over Russia, who used ads in newspapers, or simply drove around remote localities, or searched through Internet resources to find more exhibits for their exhibitions. As a result, when the number of cars exceeded 100 units, the question of their storage became urgent. That’s when the owner came up with the idea to create a full-fledged museum of Soviet automobile and motorcycle equipment, and on August 17th, 2018, the first full-fledged Retro-Technology Museum, named after Vladimir Vasilyevich Mikhailov, was opened in the Tyumen Region.
Among the museum’s exhibits are automobile and motorcycle equipment, as well as special equipment produced during the period from 1936 to 2004 by the USSR, the countries of the socialist camp, and the Russian Federation.
The museum simultaneously houses more than 50 exhibits; the exposition is constantly changing.
