The museum guides will tell about Russian tea drinking and the history of samovar art in Russia. The exposition includes a collection of samovars – large and small, old and not, heat and electric “acorns”, “turnips” and “vases”. All this is in the entourage of samovar accessories – trays, napkins and teapots. The exhibition is supplemented by graphic works by famous Norilsk artists and household items of Russian antiquity from the funds of the Norilsk Museum.
Throughout the Maslenitsa week, the Norilsk Museum invites everyone to the Russian Tea Party and excursions around the exhibition. Museum guides will tell more about the different social classes’ traditions of Russian tea drinking, the distinctive features of Maslenitsa tea drinking and the traditions of Maslenitsa celebration.
