I wasn't real thrilled initially by the thought of a museum of lace but my wife is interested so we of course we went. The collection is amazing and really is a good display of Russian lace made around the Vologda region from the late 1800's until present times. The lace celebrating soviet times and the military was kind of... More

Vologda is well known in Russia for its very unique lace. Fashion for lace comes and goes. It is nice to know that something is done on to preserve this unique local art. The museum possesses relatively small but impressive collection of items produced on Vologda lace fabrics. Plus, the detailed displays will show a layman how much time and... More

You may ask a guide to tell you about the history of museum and to show the process of making lace as it was done in Vologda, then you go through few rooms of very impressive exposition.

As a man I was surprised how interesting the museum was. I will not start making lace but some of the achievments there were amazing. And some funny like the one about Lenin and Stalin sitting on a bench.

It is a very interesting museum to visit. It explains a lot of the Vologda history and the place of the laces here. The visit is also in English which is very good. It is a must see when in Vologda.

I was fascinated by this museum, it's really perfect place to understand and learn Russian lace history. Also some expositions from other countries are usually held there, so you can compare and see the difference between different styles. By the way, I liked museum shop, you can buy something interesting there :)

I loved this museum! They did a lovely job with arranging all the items in the museum- cool mannequin displays, neat pull-out glass drawers containing lace pieces. Additionally, there was a lot of English on the walls and info plaques. Plus the whole place is beautiful: light wood floors, pale lavender walls, and crystal chandeliers. I was so impressed. The...
