During their tour of the new museum, visitors saw an interactive exhibition covering 7,000 square meters. The exhibition area was divided into four sections: “Rurikids,” “Romanovs,” “1917–1945. From Great Upheavals to the Great Victory,” and “Russia – My History. 1945–2016.” The museum’s concept includes regional content with an insight into the history of the region in the context of the abovementioned periods and the themes of the exhibition.
The first guests of the history park viewed a demonstration of cutting-edge equipment, such as touch-sensitive screens and lightboxes, and tried their hand at the video infographics, animation, 3D modeling and digital reconstruction tools available in the new museum format.
“Supporting patriotic projects is an honorable mission for companies operating in our country. I am confident that Gazprom’s contribution to the creation of this unique park will help preserve our historical memory for many generations to come. It’s worth noting that the creators of the exhibition used the language of the new generation by immersing visitors in the past via the technologies of the future,” said Anatoly Kovrigin, Deputy Director General of Gazprom Geologorazvedka.
