Museum "World of forgotten things"

The museum "World of forgotten things", an exposition which introduces the culture and daily life of citizens in pre-revolutionary era, as well as family portraits of the 18th - 19th centuries is situated in a wooden house that dates from the second half of the 19th century. The house belonged to a local writer and publicist Pavel Zasodimsky. In 1991 the house was handed over to the Vologda State Museum-Preserve.

The exhibition on the ground floor shows interiors of a living-room, a dining-room, a study and a nursery typical of the late 19th - early the 20th centuries. The main exhibits are obsolete antiques, the things that have fallen into oblivion and are not used nowadays.

On the second floor there is a room for temporary exhibitions where modern local artists display their works.

The museum is used as a salon for literary, musical and theatre events, and Christmas parties for children.
