Museum of Flat Irons, Pereslavl-Zalessky
(4.5/5 based on 360+ reviews on the web)
Delve into the history and development of an important household tool at Museum of Flat Irons, a repository for the antique items. Visit the museum, housed within a historic home constructed of wood and brick, and explore shelves lined with an extensive array of old-fashioned ironing equipment. You'll get a glimpse of life before the technology and automation of the modern age, when these irons represented a piece of the daily struggle people faced throughout the country. Among the collection, you'll see everything from thick, heavy-duty examples of irons to daintier versions with decorative handles and metal accents. Keep an eye out for other domestic artifacts, including keys, frames, teapots, and even a diving helmet. You can also join in on a tour to learn more, although it's offered only in Russian.

  • One room in the Museum, which contains many old irons. But here I'd recommend necessarily get on an excursion to an elderly man. Unfortunately, we missed the beginning, and I don't know how his name is:( Very informative story with lots of jokes, fine diction and style. And yet, the Museum surrounds the fence. And in this place all the inscriptions on the fence need to read necessarily:)

  • Really enjoyed this museum. It is located in an old merchant's House, restored by members. The tour led a very charming man with the middle name Kuzmich (sorry, don't remember the name). Despite the fact that is not the youngster, I learned a lot of interesting and new for myself. Kuzmich led tour with humor, jokes-rhymes and kindly. Although the Museum and small, it should definitely visit for anyone interested in history in General and Russia in particular.
