Museums /Kondinskii Regional Local History Museum
The Kondinskii Local History Museum was founded in 1987. The Gulag history collection began to take shape in 1999 on the initiative of N.I. Bogdanova, the Museum director. The material is put together into biographical complexes according to family (mostly photographs and documents). The stories of special settlers are recorded on audio. The Museum represents the topic of the Gulag mostly in temporary and travelling exhibitions: "Pod zhernovami stalinskikh repressii" [“Beneath the millstone of Stalinist repression”] (2001) and "Pamiat' nepodvlastna zabveniiu" [“Memory does not submit to oblivion”] (2004). The travelling exhibition "Netlennye stroki voiny" [“Undying lines of war”] (2005) features letters of front line soldiers – former special settlers. The temporary exhibition "Ia poterpel ot prestupleniia veka" [“I suffered from the crime of the century”] was created for the opening of the “Chekhnov readings” local history conference. The exhibitions are displayed in local schools and libraries. Since 1999 the Museum has conducted local history readings for the district schools, at which students give papers on the history of the special settlers. In 2006, the Kondinskii Museum, together with the school museum of Iagodnyi settlement, participated in the 2nd Iugorskii Museum Bienniale in Khanty-Mansiisk (Museum of Nature and Man) with the exhibition project "A ia razveian vetrami..." [“And I was scattered by the wind…”] (Stalinism in the fate of individuals: Russians, Ukrainians, Germans, Romanians, Moldavians, Kalmyks and Tatars). In 2009 the Museum participated in the Museum Forum and Festival of the Konda region, "Ot proshlogo k budushchemu" ["From the past to the future"], where it presented the exhibition "Moia Rodina, gde ty?" ["My Motherland, where are you?"] (photographs and documents of special settlers). In May 2007 the Museum was awarded the gold medal for “Heroic Museum” at the regional competition of the Urals Federal Region. (Information correct in June 2010).

Description of museumThe Kondinskii Local History Museum was founded in 1987, based on the Room to Labour and Battle Glory of the Party library of the RK of the CPUSSR, which held 600 exhibits. By 2008 the collection of the Museum counted more than 12,000 individual exhibits. The Museum is dedicated to the history, nature and ethnography of the Kondinskii district. The Gulag history collection began to take shape in 1999 on the initiative of N.I. Bogdanova, the Museum director. The theme of repression is not kept separate in the archives. The material is put together into biographical complexes according to family (263 pieces, mostly photographs and documents). The stories of special settlers are recorded on audio. The artefact collection contains five exhibits, all of them objects belonging to special settlers. As yet there is no thematic section about Gulag history in the permanent exhibition; there are plans for a new exhibition on the history of repression and special settlers in Kondinskii district. The Museum represents the topic of the Gulag mostly in temporary and travelling exhibitions: "Pod zhernovami stalinskikh repressii" [“Beneath the millstone of Stalinist repression”] (2001) and "Pamiat' nepodvlastna zabveniiu" [“Memory does not submit to oblivion”] (2004). The travelling exhibition "Netlennye stroki voiny" [“Undying lines of war”] (2005) features letters of front line soldiers – former special settlers. The temporary exhibition "Ia poterpel ot prestupleniia veka" [“I suffered from the crime of the century”] was created for the opening of the “Chekhnov readings” local history conference. The exhibitions are displayed in local schools and libraries. Since 1999 the Museum has conducted local history readings for the district schools, at which students give papers on the history of the special settlers. The Museum has developed special lessons which it conducts in the schools of Kondinskoe, Mezhdurechenskii and other settlements. The Museum helps school museums with archival cataloguing, excursions and exhibition work, including work on the theme of political repression. In December 2005 a seminar for the directors of school museums was held in Iagodnyi settlement with the collaboration of the Popular Education Department. In 2006, the Kondinskii Museum, together with the school museum of Iagodnyi settlement, participated in the 2nd Iugorskii Museum Bienniale in Khanty-Mansiisk (Museum of Nature and Man) with the exhibition project "A ia razveian vetrami..." [“And I was scattered by the wind…”] (Stalinism in the fate of individuals: Russians, Ukrainians, Germans, Romanians, Moldavians, Kalmyks and Tatars).
