Samara hosted a ceremonial opening of the Russia – My History multimedia park.
Gazprom is providing financial support to this cultural, patriotic and educational project.
Attending the event were Valery Golubev, Deputy Chairman of the Gazprom Management Committee, Dmitry Azarov, Acting Governor of the Samara Region, Alexey Sukhov, Deputy Presidential Plenipotentiary Envoy to the Volga Federal District, Sergey Chaban, Chief Federal Inspector for the Samara Region, Metropolitan Sergius of Samara and Togliatti, members of the public, religious figures, and honored guests.
Russia – My History is a fully interactive project that targets a wide audience. Instead of regular museum exhibits, it uses touch-sensitive screens and lightboxes. Video infographics, animation, 3D models, and digital recreations are used to make visitors feel like they are in a history textbook. The exhibition area showcases the history of the Russian state from ancient times to the present day. There are four rooms in the park: “Rurikids,” “Romanovs,” “1917–1945. From Great Upheavals to the Great Victory,” and “1945–2016. Modern Days.” Special attention is given to the history of the Samara Region. The history project is based on documents and materials, a large part of which was kept in archives labeled “Secret” and “Top Secret” until recently. The exhibition provides a wealth of information on the history of our statehood.
