Book Museum

Book Museum opened on 24 May 2007 in Regional Universal Scientific Library of Nizhni Novgorod.

Book Museum is one the few such institutions in the country and the world. Its opening exposition called “Etudes on the Russian reading public” was dedicated to the history of Nizhny Novgorod libraries and their collections which later on became the core and pride of Nizhny Novgorod State Scientific Library.

Nowadays the Museum’s exhibition activities and research work make it possible for visitors to picture everyday life and likings of common nizhegorodians, the fate of the unique collections and their former owners, the history and beauty of the Russian bookprinting tradition.
