About museum

The museum’s exhibits have been collected since the 1960s.

The request to the authorities to provide space for the museum, except promises, did not bring results. The museum was created at the personal expense of the organizer and was opened with the participation of the mayor of Chelyabinsk and honor guests on the anniversary of the museum’s founder, Sergei Grigoryevich Vasiliev.

The museum presents the author’s works of famous photo masters from the USSR, Russia, Europe, and the Baltic States. There is a hall for photo exhibitions and a library of photo publications from different countries – more than 1,000 items (not counting photo journals and catalogs), as well as old photographic equipment, photographic prizes and award medals, and a living room for meeting guests for tea.
