About the event

The museum is hosting an exhibition of postcards from the collection of Evgeniy Novikov.

Visitors to the exhibition can trace the century and a half history of the Russian postcard - from the very first postal forms to modern postcards with augmented reality and drawn by artificial intelligence. They will also see postcards made from unusual materials: wood, fabric, with sound mechanisms, with real rapeseed flowers and samples of coal.

President of the Union of Philocartists of Russia Vasily Volkov noted: “Any exhibition dedicated to postcards is a wonderful event. And an exhibition made by a real collector is doubly wonderful. Collecting postcards is not only an interesting hobby, but also the preservation of cultural heritage. You can easily find examples throughout Russia where restorers and researchers obtained the information they needed from ancient postcards. I wish this exhibition to arouse interest among visitors, and of course, let exhibitions with postcards become regular guests of this site.”
