This museum was opened by an NGO with the help of local historians, lately it has been taken over by the state. The archives, exhibitions etc were just taken over by the government. The former researchers can't even access what they themselves collected. The buildings...More

It startled me to learn that the special regime area was added in the 1980’s. I had thought this system of Gulags had become less common after the death of Stalin. There were about 175 guards watching over approximately 250 prisoners, a proportion I felt...More

Surprised to find that it had reopened, but was quite a way out of Perm centre. Worth the drive. This can be arranged with a local, reputable taxi driver but speak to the tourist information office first for more details. A powerful and moving insight...More
