USSR Museum in VDNKh
Since December 2012, the USSR Museum was located in VDNH. But at the end of October 2014, the museum moved to New Arbat.
Today, many people relate differently to the country of the Soviets, but most of the inhabitants of our country were born in this country. One thing is certain, it was a powerful empire that made a great contribution to the history of mankind.
The purpose of the museum is an opportunity to remember those things that surrounded people in Soviet times. To talk about the ideology of our great country that raised millions of October people, pioneers, members of Komsomol and members of the CPSU. Show our leaders through actions they remember.
The cult of personality in all its manifestations, Soviet cars, slot machines, sports cups, computers, phones, televisions, cameras and radios, alcohol and food, food stamps, movie posters, clothes and shoes, toys and games, items indoor, postcards, medals, badges, stamps and souvenirs: all this was done in the USSR. 06/12/2019 10:23:50 OSD.RU

Museum of the USSR in the Exhibition Center of all Russia. Part 1, economic and historical
The purpose of my trip on Saturday to the Exhibition Center throughout Russia was the so-called Museum of the USSR in Hall n. ° 2.
After looking at your site, I immediately decided to go there and without information intermediaries to evaluate “what kind of Sukhov it is”. It is clear that the theme of the “Soviet era”, which has moved away from us for more than 20 years in history, has now become very popular and attracts the attention of many. In addition, a whole generation has already grown, which “the scoop does not know”, and judges about that moment mainly by myths: positive, jokes or negative. And those who found the collapse of the USSR in primary and even secondary school age, in fact, do not know the era of the Soviet Union until 1987 and do not understand very well the realities of it.
The theme of the Soviet Union is inconvenient for the current state: the liberals and perestroika successfully threw the social status of the fifties and eighties, and the current elite hatched between August 91 and October 93 as a denial of the past. Only, perhaps, the issue of war as an unconditional control of national consciousness was partially led by them to a new post-Soviet being. Therefore, the post-Soviet eReF and its dominant strata do not need Soviet museums as a means of showing history and our common past. But there is a theme! It exists, and interest in it is constantly growing.
And that? If it is not the state, then entrepreneurs. Then, they undertook the development of a new field of miracles. Which is logical.
It is interesting, but how the new museum describes this era. The location, frankly, was embarrassing in advance: after all, the All-Russia Exhibition Center is now a commercial shawl, in addition to a continuous influx of commercial and transit visitors. And renting a place in the pavilions is not cheap, it means that the “museum” is most likely small.
Intuition did not deceive: the museum turned out not to be a Soviet collection (as in Kazan), not an anti-Soviet reprimand (as in Tallinn or Riga), it turned out to be sealed with blueberries, closer to the Museum of Communism in Prague but a strawberry What, In principle, it is not surprising for a commercial approach: after all, what else should a simple visitor catch, with which bait live? Only in known stamps, in combination with strawberries, blueberries and all recognized pop brands (erotic women, Brezhnev kiss, Stalin with tube, humpback constipation, pioneer necks, dolls and other popular Kalash with vodka and a bear) 80) To guarantee it, You must add thrash and performances to that mix, to be absolutely sure of reaching the target mass audience. So to speak, one-eyed.ru.ru museum.
However, let see. I divided the overview of the museum into two parts: historical and everyday and cranberry. By the way, it is very clearly divided there and spatially, into these two parts. Now – politics (history) and life.
