About museum

A.S. Kokovin collects bottles of the Russian Empire that have molded inscriptions or possess the original forms. The Glass Bottles Museum has more than 600 exhibits; each is a valuable artifact in itself. The vessels were made during the time of the Russian Empire; on some of them, upon closer examination, you can see the dates and inscriptions. Each bottle has its own special shape – the collection has a “bust” of Pushkin, a clubfoot bear, a circus performer on a ball, and much more. In addition, many of the exhibits are made of colored glass, which reflects the rays of illumination very beautifully, specially mounted into the racks.
