Visitors will see the collection of household utensils, house construction drafts, stoves, and courtyard buildings made during field expeditions.

The museum was founded by the Agishevs family, the collectors and connoisseurs of Soviet art, in 2012. The exposition falls into three parts. The first one is dedicated to the contemporary art of Russia and presents art works by Dubosarsky, Zvezdochetov, and other modern artists. The second part highlights the contemporary art of the Perm Territory and includes works by famous local authors (Nurulin, Kayetkin, etc). The third part of the exposition is dedicated to the works by contemporary little-known artists.

Selenite Room
Selenite Room is a project that has no analogues in the world. The ornamental stone of selenite is a beautiful crystalline variety of gypsum. Its concentration in the Perm Territory indicates that there was the Permian Sea in its area in the past. The Selenite Room is a special grotto decorated with selenite designer mosaic panels on its walls. The project initiator and the creator of many selenite panels is artist Anatoly Ivanov.
