Local History Museum

Local History Museum
The museum was established in 1921 in the former mansion of the merchant Y. Gegelovych. The building was considered an important monument of architecture and urban development. Later in the same year the “Museum of antiques” was opened to the general public. The collection of the Museum was formed with pieces of archeology, numismatics, porcelain, antique books and art objects. All together there are about 2000 pieces. In 1933 the name was changed to Yevpatorian Local History Museum”. During the German occupation a part of collection was removed. Restoration of the Museum began in 1944. The most significant display in the Museum is the collection of archaeology, which includes nearly 40 pieces. The exhibition reflects the natural history of north-western Crimea, the 25 century-long history of Yevpatoriya and its resorts. Today the Museum houses approximately 90 thousand articles and is visited by over 80 thousand annually. The museum organises lectures, culture events, subject excursions, and conferences.
