Russia - my history
A new project dedicated to Russian history was launched in December. It’s called «Russia - my history» and covers the period from IX century to the present. It’s quite a unique project, because lots of information technology like projectors, screens, panels and the like have been used there. Pictures, old photos, documents, articles about history, videos and a lot of other multimedia stuff are available so that the visitors can actually see, feel and perhaps even understand the history of our Motherland. The exhibition takes place in a new museum. You can learn about Rurikovichs dynasty, Romanovs dynasty, and XX century. All those issues are represented with modern technologies. The museum provides visitors with loads of images and videos to make it easier to get the information and plunge into the atmosphere of the distant past and even get the sense of travelling in time.
The museum is located near Park Pobedy metro station on Basseinaya street 31. It’s open from Tuesday to Friday from 10.00 till 20.00. Free admission until the 1st of April
