Moscow Private Museum Tour: Introducing the Traveling National Costumes Museum

The team of the Association of Private Museums of Russia visited the Traveling National Costumes Museum and its founder Elena Robertovna Bunakova.

The first costume in Elena’s collection appeared 23 years ago. She brought it from Dushanbe. Then Elena was waiting for the birth of her second child, and the Tajik national costume, which is distinguished by a free cut, suited her perfectly. From that moment on, she did not return from travels without valuable acquisitions. National costumes, vintage women’s clothing, household utensils, books and dolls were brought by her in different years from different places of the former USSR, and then Russia and foreign countries.

Today Elena actively conducts educational meetings and master classes in schools in Moscow and the Moscow region, her collection can often be seen in regional houses of nationalities, at various exhibition sites and in museum complexes in Moscow and the Moscow region. Last year alone, the collection of the Traveling National Costumes Museum was presented at five major exhibitions.
