Ogni Moskvy Museum

Nikolai Galkin/TASS

This is a small specialized museum, wholly devoted to the history of street illumination in Moscow. The streets of old Moscow, fashioned with props, demonstrate street lights from different epochs, from the evanescent wicker lamp to gas burner to electric light to late 20th-century neon illumination. All kinds of lighting fixtures are available for close inspection. Visitors will travel back in time to see night-time Moscow 50 or 200 years ago. In the evening, museum staff will take you on a tour of nearby streets, explaining the nuances of Moscow's street illumination. The museum offers fascinating master classes, for example, how to make your own electric light, or a class on candle painting.
