Fire-technical exhibition (Chelyabinsk)

Last week I visited the city of Chelyabinsk on a business visit. Of course – business by business, but I don’t forget about museums either. Due to the still sufficient winter weather, I had to exclude open areas from the wish list. After a thorough study of the list of attractions, I chose the Fire and Technical Exhibition.

At least because there was no such topic in the list of my visits. Well, plus, I hoped to find an answer there to a question posed to me at a foreign modeling forum about the color of pre-war Soviet fire extinguishers.

The exhibition is located in the city center and is easily identified from the outside by this sign


To the left of the entrance is a very worthy sculptural composition (the inscription: “Glory to the brave”).

The exhibition is located on the territory of the current fire station, so access is limited.

The entrance is framed by fire-fighting equipment, separated by a century-long gap.

The first thing that catches your eye inside is that the building is not adapted, but specially built!

The design of the museum has a strong spirit of developed socialism.

Luxurious stands, showcases with shiny goblets and hefty models of buildings give the spirit of the era.

I plunged right into my childhood.
