A grand opening of the Russia – My History park took place in Novosibirsk. The multimedia complex is part of the project carried out in Russian regions by the Patriarchal Council for Culture and the Foundation for Humanitarian Projects with the backing of Gazprom.
Participating in the event were Sergey Menyaylo, Presidential Plenipotentiary Envoy to the Siberian Federal District, Andrey Travnikov, Acting Governor of the Novosibirsk Region, Bishop Tikhon, vicar of the Patriarch of Moscow and All Russia, Valery Golubev, Deputy Chairman of the Gazprom Management Committee, and Anatoly Titov, Director General of Gazprom Transgaz Tomsk.
The Russia – My History park in Novosibirsk is the first such park in the Siberian Federal District. The exhibition occupies three floors of the Officers’ Club building (63 Krasny Prospekt St.). The exhibition area is divided into four sections: “Rurikids,” “Romanovs,” “1917–1945. From Great Upheavals to the Great Victory,” and “Russia – My History. 1945–2016.” Special attention is paid to the history of the Novosibirsk Region and the development of Siberia.
The historical park was created using cutting-edge museum technologies, in particular, touch-screen tables and displays. Information is presented, inter alia, via infographics, animation, 3D models, and digital recreations. The park is expected to host lectures and events related to history and socially significant public occasions.
“It is an honor for our company to be a part of this grand national project. It is especially significant that this park is based in Novosibirsk, the heart of Siberia. We are confident that the historical park aimed primarily at young people will play an important part in the future of the Novosibirsk Region,” said Valery Golubev.
