The Chernomyrdin Museum is located in the homeland of the Prime Minister of the Russian Federation (1993-1998) - in Cherny Otrog, Orenburg Region. The Chernomyrdin Museum is three museums in one: "About Chernomyrdin", "Chernomyrdin Collections", "Chernomyrdin Land".
The exhibition “Pathway to History” is a story of V.S. Chernomyrdin's life. It is not often that one gets to meet one the top State officials face to face - thanks to archive video materials, the narration in the exposition is conducted in the first person: the Visitor constantly feels the Host’s presence.
The exposition could be also seen as a pathway from Tschorny Otrog to the White House: together with Chernomyrdin we find ourselves in the Cossack village and the post-war collective kolkhoz farm, on the construction of the Orenburg giant plant and the gas fields of Siberia, we get introduced to the secrets of Gazprom formation, and transported back to Budennovsk in 1995 and to Belgrade in 1999, when NATO bombing shook Yugoslavia. In addition one can visit the cabin of the Premiere's plane, witness international negotiations, stand at the State Duma tribune, plunge into the atmosphere of the Ukraine, which is no longer there.
Car collection owned by V.S. Chernomyrdin - 19 cars - includes cult models of their time, some exceptionally rare piece specimens, as well as replicars (copies of an old body with a modern engine and chassis).
The museum includes a temporary exhibition, a library and an archive, a theater and concert hall, studios and creative workshops, hospitality infrastructure, an information center
