The center of musical antiquities executes the scientific program for detection and restoration in forms and sounding of ancient music instruments of the 10-15th centuries, evidence of which archaeologists discover in the old part of Veliky Novgorod. The cultural and educational program of the Center includes exhibitions, tours, consulting, lecture-demonstrations dedicated to the musical culture of ancient Novgorod.
Various ancient music instruments presented here will tell their story. If you are visiting Veliky Novgorod you must visit this wonderful place with the great atmosphere. You will be told a story of the ancient Russian city, the medieval capital through acquaintance with the music of this time. The storyteller is genius, who loves her work and keeps this place. The museum was created by Vladimir Povetkin, who was a legendary person in Novgorod, he reconstructed many instruments by himself and was playing them. The excursion during the working days is mainly dedicated to the history of the city and this amazing place while the musical instruments are the focus of the story during the weekends. Anyways, we have enjoyed music from all the instruments in the end of our excursion. We were about to dance as they sound amazing! We are truly grateful to the highly dedicated and professional staff of the museum. We will come back!

My friends brought me here to see this living history museum while I was visiting Russia. The museum is broken into a series of regions and eras, ranging from the yurt exhibit as you come in, to examples of wooden churches, ordinary houses from various regions, and other interesting exhibits. I would compare this to the Highland Folk Museum in Newcastle, Scotland; or Plimoth Plantation or Old Sturbridge Village in Massachusetts, USA (though a lot less "reenactor" staff than Plimoth plantation). Worth a detour out of your way if you love living history, architecture, and to go poking in cupboards and historical buildings.
