One of the places where I wanted to look in Kolomna – Art communal apartment, a museum telling about life in a communal apartment the time of Venedikt Erofeev. No, I did not live in a communal flat and I do not have nostalgia, but in my opinion it is more interesting than the Museum of marshmallow or Museum of rolls. Although, as they say, the taste and color, in truth pretend.

Art Communal Museum
This museum more than justifies its title of “museum” than the rest, as in contrast, contains the most genuine collection exhibits from the past of our country. Not all of them are straight old-old and something I remember from my childhood-youth, but in In general, they try to maintain the atmosphere of the 60s, as I understand it. So Thus, the museum is more suitable for nostalgic for the USSR, those who is still quite young or did not live in the province. I really liked One review that clarifies this point, I can not help but quote:
I can not say that the museum has caused me delight. In my opinion Not enough time has passed yet to make a museum out of it. The furnishings of one of the rooms are not very different from those in my grandma’s room. Yes, and the corridor is also not surprised. there is various antique artifacts that may be of interest, but most of them can still be found on the street and in everyday life. I think this tour will be interesting for the capital residents, and for people from the province – it is still early.
Probably, everything is as it is, for Moscow and Muscovites such the situation is no longer typical, so it was interesting for me to walk along a communal apartment, inhale the smell of old things, and rejoice, that those days are gone. And, I hope, they will not return, because to live in such conditions, the crowd is relatively acceptable except that the student body.

Nobody listens to records yet?
Bobbin tape recorder!
A young girl gave me a tour, she was standing at the checkout. The story is not long and took about 20 minutes, not more. After the story I could walk through all the rooms and quietly take photos and even try the “communal” treat, standing in the kitchen. In reviews about Artcommunal write about long excursions (hour), but either I just came under closure and was in proud loneliness, or it was about theatrical performances that need sign up in advance.
As I found out, the apartment was once, indeed, communal, but all things that are in it are not out of it and brought specially. The museum opened in 2011 and continues collect your collection from locals. True, much they already do not take, since there is no space or exhibit somehow duplicated. I think, noticeably, how much is in the photographs, excessively, I would said Not sure that there were several in this communal tape recorders, radios, cameras, phones. Art communal private project and not funded by the state, but recently their added to the registry, or whatever it is called. Periodically in living in an apartment, but not just anyone, but artists, writers and other artists, they also conduct master classes there and create new art.
