“Holiday Packaging” Exhibition in Krapivna

1December 24, 2015 - January 24, 2016
Krapivna Local History Museum 

The Krapivna Museum invites you to learn about the history of holiday packaging. December 24, 2015, the exhibition “Holiday Packaging” opened at the museum.

Visitors will see objects from the collections of the Krapvina Museum and the Historical Regional and Art Museum (Tula), and also samples of products of the Yasnaya Polyana Packing Material Factory. They include candy and tea boxes from the end of the 19th and beginning of the 20th century and from the 1970s-80s, and the best examples of current production.


At the exhibition, you can not only see those objects and learn much of interest about the history of holiday packaging. Especially for the New Year’s holiday, the Krapivna Museum offers you the opportunity to make a special gift box yourself, and also to try to guess the secret of some packages, for which a right guess will entitle you to a prize.

Or maybe you have some old boxes at home? Maybe they hold letters, photographs, thread, buttons, or other things. The Krapivna Museum will be grateful to all who respond and give their old boxes to the museum. If your box has a special story with it, then it’s doubly valuable. For your help you will receive a certificate as a donor to the museum and will be noted on the museum’s site and on its pages in social networks.

We all try to give gifts in beautiful packages. After all, often an ordinary box elicits the most unexpected feelings in people –it intrigues them, enchants them, and forces them to try to guess what is hidden within. And sometimes such a box itself becomes a real gift. It can be a box of candy or tea, packaging with a toy or a small box with jewelry items. The Krapivna exhibition eloquently shows that the holiday box is a true work of art.

The exhibition will be open every day from 09:00 to 17:00. The cost of a visit with an excursion is 30 rubles for discount tickets and 50 rubles for an ordinary ticket.
