Sock Museum in Tambov

An unusual museum – the Museum of Sock – was opened in the city of Rasskazovo in Tambovsk Oblast. This city is famous for its woolens and knits, that is why  Rasskazovo is one of the 13 destinations of the tourist route «Shopping-tour». And it is planned to carry the tourists not only to the retail outlets, but also teach them the knitting art. 


The museum collection has about 300 exhibits, mostly knitted by hand. The socks represent different ages. The majority of ancient socks, mittens and toys was brought by the local community. Some exhibits are more than 50 years old.
