About museum

The Museum was founded from a private collection on December 28th, 2019, by two female enthusiasts who were born in the USSR. The Museum was primarily created to preserve our Soviet past in order to tell the next generation about it: about that feeling of a careless childhood, where children went for walks without mobile phones, and while leaving the house, left their keys under the doormats, wrote their parents notes, and left them in the apartment doors…

Our Museum, the exhibitions of which are dedicated to Soviet and post-Soviet life, gives us an opportunity to return to the past for a short time and again find ourselves in a place, surrounded by familiar things from childhood. The Museum has halls, like: «Communal kitchen», «Communal», «Room of 50s-70s», «Room of 80s-90s». This is not just a museum, but a museum-apartment with an area of more than 80 square meters. Now there is an opportunity for the residents of the city and district, as well as their guests, to plunge into their childhood, visit their grandmothers and, of course, play with toys. When you enter the museum from the first threshold, you will become completely immersed in the recreated atmosphere of the 1940s to the 1990s. Guests are greeted with music, played by a gramophone record. The Museum has a warm, cozy and friendly atmosphere. There is also an interesting, exciting, fun and, at the same time, informative tour. It will be very interesting for both adults and children of any age. The Museum has more than 200 exhibits.
