Tula Museum of Samovars, Tula

(3.2/5 based on 320+ 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.

  • But because the Museum should be seen. Yes, it is small, but this is the most museums one subject-but only here you can get acquainted with the history of Samovar at all and the famous Tula Samovar in particular. Better of course do this with a guide-very cute and with the soul of an exposition of young ladies.

  • A small museum-the building of the Kremlin, on the 2 floor 1 room approximately 10х20 meters. On all samovars enough half an hour-hour. There are apps in AppStore/GooglePlay with a description of the exposure, you can download in advance.

  • Got into the Museum after the Museum of weapons and do not vpechatlilis'. Yes, many different samovars, such a kind of ... But the exposition so little, really for 30 minutes all you can see. 1 floor is now being renovated, may, when it is finished, will be better.
