The museum of printing house will appear in Karelian Kalevala
A team of researchers based on the microlaboratory of local history of Karelia ILMIK launched the project "Regional printing house in the Karelian Arctic frontier – museum of information technologies of the last century". This was reported by the official portal of the republic.
"Karelia has a huge tourist potential, but there are not always enough objects to show and tell stories, such as local museums, and qualified personnel. The district printing house in the village of Kalevala can contribute to the development of historical and cultural tourism in the region," the message says.
The project team is developing an exposition of the museum, which is created on the basis of an authentic printing complex of the middle of the last century, preserved in the village of Kalevala.
The printing house was established in 1962 in the border region of the republic, where it had a great influence on the economic and political life of the region.
"Today, this object is of great historical value and it is very important to preserve it in its original form," the portal notes.
The project participants conducted extensive research, collected, described and systematized the exhibits.
Currently, developers are creating an interactive lesson for schoolchildren, as well as a 3D model and an audio guide to the main exposition.
