#2 of 15 in Museums in Tula
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.

    Call it a Museum at all in my opinion very difficult one Hall (room). It was a pity even those money (150) per ticket.

    My husband is a big admirer of samovars. When he learned that going through Tulu delighted. And when it came to the Museum-disappointed. A small museum, tours there (we were passing through, so pre-registration is not for us). Questions remained unanswered.

    I honestly expected more from this museum. Yes, and it's hard to call the Museum, exhibition soon. 1 floor was closed for renovations, large Samovar, where mini exhibition, closed for some technical reasons. Not enough interernosti Museum, a small dive in the era. Because you can not just put in glass cabinets, samovars and come up with some story, beat-era items.

  • I wish it was bigger and they showed more about the production of the samovar.
  • Samovar, thé . Musée
  • Interesting samovars in a historic building. Best view with excursion. But in our excursions were not. Two rooms one is closed for renovation. Many travel brochures.

  • In the city of Astrakhan has a café "Samovar", which is famous among local residents lots of different kinds of samovars, which adorn the Interior of the restaurant. In the Museum "Tula samovars" exhibits much more, from the smallest to the Samovar, upirajushhegosja in the ceiling. Very interesting exhibits are presented, one straight sunk into the soul, enough "the Horde", which I would like to show everyone. Very convenient location, low cost Museum, located on the ground floor gift shop, which was purchased by magnets and crayon-giant (also, incidentally the cost acceptable)

  • Many samovars, large and small, a variety of shapes and sizes. You can visit the Museum, you can tour. Everywhere there are decals that describe that during the exhibit. It was interesting.
