About museum

The idea came to Viktor Feodorovich Zhukov 13 years ago, when he organized an exhibition of retro cars. The exhibition was held for seven years, and during all this time he collected exhibits for the museum.

We conduct tours, workshops, mass photo shoots, exhibitions, plein-air events, and joint events with other museums and cultural centers.

The collection includes household items: furniture, household appliances, personal belongings, dishes, clothes, as well as various types of transport, such as bicycles, scooters, cars, motorcycles, etc.

Extensive collections of vintage items, an exhibition of retro cars, a mini-zoo, and a shooting gallery are waiting for you. The exhibition halls will delight you with new exhibits, including an exposition dedicated to our fellow countryman, the famous architect Vasily Ivanovich Bazhenov.

The museum is interactive. You can pet animals, as well as touch and hold exhibits in your hands.

All are invited!
