Specialty Museum
Learn about the history of tea service as a key Russian social ritual at Museum "Tula samovars". The museum features a variety of samovars, such as models with a removable jug, coffee pots, and portable designs. See the samovar's predecessor--the 18th century "sbitennik," which was a pot used to prepare a sweet drink with herbs and honey. Other interesting exhibits include the five small samovars that belonged to the children of Emperor Nikolas II Romanov, and the samovar presented to Stalin in 1949 for his 70th birthday. If you're ready to bring the tea tradition home, the museum shop sells high-quality, custom-made samovars.

Pleased the Museum staff-friendly and lovely women, one of whom, because of their good mood and our attitudes took us to a fascinating conversation about the role of samovars Tula's history. The original decision to place shelving with small samovars inside the huge fellow, containing in itself and a few people.

  • After the new Museum weapons Museum of samovars seemed dull and uninteresting, as if stuck in the USSR. Maintenance and update of the exposition, lacks any interactivity.
