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