About museum

Created in 2014. There was an opinion that the history of the creation and production of icon metal mountings in Russia is not adequately reflected in the literature, and the visual works of the Russian coinage masters will be interesting to visitors. There are more than 200 metal mountings from the 17th to 20th centuries made in various styles and complexity.

About 200 documents from the office of the Kostroma Governor-General for the period of 1805-1836 are also presented (noble assembly, county documents, documents of the Ministry of Internal Affairs, prison castle).

We are a member of the Private museums in support of the Russian province Association (Kostroma museums: military-historical, museum of the mayor Botnikov).
