    The State Museum of Political History of Russia was founded in 1919. It reflects political, economic, and social life of Russian society of the XIXth- XXIst centuries.

    The Museum is situated in two historical buildings in the city centre - Kshesinkaya and Brandt's mansions.

    Museum collection is around 500 000 objects. A remarkable part of the collection is an unique gathering of posters, bills and slogans of the end of the XIXth and the XXth centuries; collection of propaganda porcelain of 1920s and gathering of Revolutionary banners of 1917.

    The exposition "Soviet Epoch Between Utopia and Reality" is dedicated to daily life of people in USSR in times of Stalin, Khrushchev and Brezhnev. You can see a typical kitchen of communal flat, a cabinet of bureaucrat of 1940-50s, can hear about attitude to religion and art in Soviet society, about prisoners of GULAG and dissident movement.
