About museum

It is no secret, that at the end of the 19th century the first store of Maximilian Faktorovich was opened in Ryazan, which later gained a worldwide fame under the name Max Factor. This amazing fact was the first step towards the creation of the collection, dedicated to the world of beauty and flavors at the turn of the 20th century.

In our historical salon there are no covered storefronts. You can touch many of the exhibits with your hands and examine them carefully. We want to immerse everyone in that era and enchant them with the “Flavor of Time.”

The exhibition is divided into several zones: “Boudoir”, “Barbershop”, and “Pharmacy Store”. Part of the space is dedicated to the later Hollywood period of max Factor’s life.

Here you can not only hear a fascinating story about the life of the founder of the cosmetics production, but also see and even hold in your hands authentic items of a bygone era: fashion magazines from 120 years ago, rare bottles, tubes of cosmetics and many other things.
