Tula Museum of Samovars, Tula
(3.3/5 based on 280+ reviews on the web)
Learn about the history of tea service as a key Russian social ritual at Tula Museum of 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.

  • Put 5 only because of the exposure. Samovars of different suits collected many interesting move from showcases to showcase. There are cuttings on orders at factories of those years, stories about samovars. The child was delighted by the tremendous Samovar, in which you can run. The Museum building itself in a terrible state. just a shame for the fatherland! Such a intresnaâ show, almost a symbol of the city, and this nightmare in household part. A conversation with smotritel′nicej, so she almost crying, telling that the overhaul was in mahrovom ... Now the Museum forced scaffolding. Hopefully not only the façade of the pripudrât, but also within the lead all in order.

  • Unable to visit. The Museum is closed for renovation from August 30. Very upset ... be careful when planning your route to Tula.
