About museum

To learn an interesting story about Hedgehog Petrovich, we invite dear guests to our family museum and offer you the interactive excursion program Visit Hedgehog Petrovich, where, having plunged into the warm and fabulous atmosphere of the museum, you will become participants in an entertaining Hedgehog Petrovich creation from salted dough master class, which all guests will take back with them. A fun and informative tale awaits you: the famous Petrovsk birch grove, which was planted on the orders of Empress Catherine II over 200 years ago, and Hedgehog Petrovich, who was honored with her attention and mercy. Since then, Hedgehog Petrovich went down in history and became a real symbol of Petrovsk; our family museum is dedicated to it. By the way, it brought together a wonderful company of all kinds of hedgehogs made in various art techniques and crafts, and which, without a doubt, will delight the eyes of both adults and our smallest visitors. At the end of this wonderful meeting, a tea party with homemade refreshments will take place!

We hope that the hedgehog, the image of a great worker, caring and provident, a real symbol of prosperity and welfare, will appeal to all our guests and will give joy and a good mood!!! You are welcome to visit the Hedgehog Petrovich Museum.
