I've been in this museum with my mom and aunt, who were absolutely thrilled, because every exhibit was familiar to them or thy even had the same in the past! There are lots of old soviet toys, clothes, electronics and even food-examples! So interesting! Honestly, I saw it all in my life many times, but I have never seen them collected together. The owner of the museum did a great job creating very atmospheric place!

One part of the museum can be interesting to music fans is the collection of the jeans of soviet and russian rock-stars!

So, if you are in Kazan do not forget to check on this soulful small museum - the entrance fee is super-low and the emotion you got there is huge!

Small but full of "anything" belonging to the Sovier era (especially in the 80s). It is interesting to compare what are memories of western childhood & teenager time with the Soviet toys and icons. There are some items for sale such as pins. www.muzeisb.ru

Open the door and step into the past. The only difference from Soviet days, is the warm welcome you'll receive from Director Rustem Valiakhmetov who hopes for more visitors, even from Western Europe. This museum is well-worth the half hour it takes for a leisurely visit. Take the time to pause at the various exhibits, imagining what life used to be like. And say hi to Rustem from his first friends from Norway !
