THE HOUSE IN WHICH HEROES LIVED
BY SOFIA LEBEDEVA | FEBRUARY 08, 2020
Recently, the «House of Aviators» was opened in Vsevolozhsk. As part of the traditional trip to the Piskarevskoye cemetery, teachers and students of our gymnasium were among the first to visit the new museum.
In the modern world, the word «museum» has long ceased to mean boredom, signs of «do not touch with your hands!» and dusty shop windows. The Aviators House is one of the best examples of this. This is the place where almost everything can be touched.
Do you want to listen to radio recordings of the Great Patriotic War or the memoirs of military pilots, without breaking the silence of the hall? Do you want to see from all sides a 3d model of a fighter on a touch screen? Or «implant» yourself in a 40s style photograph? Or play an air battle? Easy! The Aviators House is equipped literally with the latest technology. All halls are equipped with many interactive panels and screens. Everything has been done so that it would be accessible and very interesting to convey information, to tell visitors of the difficult history of the war.
Naturally, there are exhibits behind the glass screens in this museum. For example, air mines, impressive in size. A little further, in the next room, a piece of the room of the Aviators House was exactly reproduced. At the entrance to the large display cases there are surprisingly realistic sculptures, it’s impossible to call them mannequins.
Perhaps the outside of the museum will not impress you: a deserted courtyard with exit pavilions still under construction and some strange construction covered with polyethylene, probably this will soon be a large model of an airplane, but this is only for now. I advise everyone to try to visit this unusual museum!
