It is not difficult to get to the Moscow Kremlin. No one is banned.
Thousands of people come here every day. Perhaps you also visited the Kremlin.
If you have, you surely passed along Ivanovskaya Square, walked along the Tainitsky garden, admired the ensemble of the Cathedral Square.
Probably were inside these ancient temples - Uspensky, Arkhangelsk, Blagoveshchensky.
Maybe even - got acquainted with the collection of the Armory Chamber. Well, if you happened to be one of the rare visitors to the Diamond Fund, then probably your friends were very jealous of you ...

But, no matter how many times you visit the Kremlin, no matter how well you get acquainted with its sights, some places in the Kremlin are certain
This is the buildings and territories that are allocated to state institutions and services that support the activities of the President of Russia.

A virtual tour will help fill this gap. It reveals hitherto, unfortunately, closed to tourists objects, included in the Kremlin complex of the President's residence. And opens - in a unique and graphic detail.

The Senate Palace and the Grand Kremlin Palace will appear before you in all the smallest details - down to the inscriptions on the roots of the books in the wardrobes of the Presidential Library and barely noticeable details of the ancient murals of the Faceted Chamber.
You will examine every stone, every piece of interior, every monogram on high ceilings, every leaf in the Kremlin gardens as if you were in close proximity to them.

In addition to the interiors, the site "Opening the Kremlin" A lot of exciting outdoor species.
From high points you will see such corners of the Kremlin, about the existence of which you do not suspect, strolling along it.

Virtual Gulag Online Museum

The specific of the map is that it shows not only the Gulags, but also the places from where people who were sitting in the Gulag were from.

The site was created by Czechs and concerns primarily prisoners from other countries, primarily Czechoslovakia, Poland and Hungary.
That is, it opens a little-known page of the Gulag.

Here you can find information about Gulags, people's testimonies, household items, panorama, 3D tour.

Gulag Museum

In modern Russia there is no national Gulag Museum. It is absent not only as a material object - it is not in Russian culture as a necessary link between knowledge and understanding, fact and event, experience and memory.
The memory of the communist terror did not become an integral and integral part of the national memory, it is still fragmentary memories of local events that are not connected by a common conceptual essence.
This is the state of memory demonstrated by existing museum collections and exhibition projects.

Today, the Gulag Museum is a collection of initiatives by enthusiasts and authors' groups, scattered geographically and disaggregated thematically and methodologically.
in different towns and cities of the former USSR, there are a variety of government, agency, community, school, and other museums that are created in their permanent collections of the sections devoted to specific aspects of the topic, specifically collect documentary and material evidence of the history of repression, As well as organize temporary or periodic exhibitions.

As a rule, these are autonomous and unrelated initiatives taken by museum collectives.
In most cases, these exposures are known only to a limited number of visitors and are not claimed outside the geographically limited community.
Nevertheless, the need to comprehend the experience of the Gulag and terror in the generalized museum view continues to be felt as an urgent contemporary problem.
Today it is important to understand: all the components of the future museum already exist in reality - these are autonomous initiatives.
Complementing, and sometimes contradicting each other, they accumulate experience, which should form the basis of the future Museum.
The main question remains - how to add these components to a single semantic whole?
How to integrate fragmented knowledge and local understanding into a single historical panorama?

The St. Petersburg Memorial Scientific Information Center has been implementing the idea of ​​creating the Virtual Gulag Museum for the fifth year.
We view this project as a collection of various museum and exhibition initiatives united in a single virtual space for comparing and finding ways of integration, while at the same time ensuring that the regional and author's specifics are not lost, but enter into a single whole as part of it.
The ultimate goal of the project is the creation of the Virtual Museum, which represents both the general picture of the history of terror and the current state of memory about it, in its material embodiment.

The "memorial" memory of terror is also an integral part of this picture, and In our collection, it is represented by two separate components: "Gulag Traces" - signs of the past in the landscape and anthropogenic environment surrounding us, and "Necropolis of Terror" - hundreds of preserved, semi-preserved or almost extinct places of burial of victims of terror.
The next stage of our project will be the construction of a virtual museum based on the collected collection - with a multimedia presentation of the exhibits, with detailed museum documentation, with a reference device including thematic and other headings, indexes, virtual card files, with thematic expositions, temporary and permanent exhibitions, with the developed System of virtual excursions.

TV Museum

The Virtual Museum of Radio and Television.
The history of television and radio is the history of Russian culture, The history of our country, therefore rich, interesting and attractive. It can not be complete unless there is a museum of radio and television, there is no encyclopedia, there are no public collections of private archives that are kept by those who started radio and television. Therefore, in the beginning of 2001, the idea arose for creating a virtual museum of radio and television on Internet. The Moscow Office UNESCO supported the concept of the project.
