The world’s largest Museum devoted to the history of Northern (Arctic) Convoys is being created in St. Petersburg at Bolshoy Smolensky prospect, 36 (College of Admiral Makarov State University of Maritime and Inland Shipping). Special emphasis in compiling the Museum’s exposition is made on the lives of Convoys’ veterans from different countries. The stands will feature artifacts, photographs and documents of veterans as well as their memories.
Exposition halls are planned to be designed using modern technologies for their interactive use and perception. The combination of classical “museum” presentation of the material with the achievements of IT-technologies will make the experience of visiting Museum enjoyable and memorable for both the older generation and the youth.
For the moment more than 400 exhibits have been received and formalized (these are mostly personal belonging of the Convoys’ veterans donated to the Museum by their families).
