Lace is a symbol of Vologda

In this museum, you can see samples of lace from very different times, from the oldest to the newest. I recommend everyone to visit this museum.

Quite nice but too communist-years-oriented

The museum was inaugurated in 2010, i.e. in the so-called "new times" but the impression is it happened under comrade Chrushchev or "mashal" Brezhnev - so heavy is a Soviet era shift. Lace from Vologda is more than half a century old but looking at corresponding showpieces one gets an impression that its history hardly covers seventy-five years. Upon entering you face charming works dating late XIX-early XX centuries. Intricate pieces of art of lace weaving designated for local beauties and socialites. But most of the collection represents either Soviet ideology or something gigantically bizarre and totally impractical. All this demostrates backbreaking effort and unbelievable skills of lacemakers but has been apparently produced to show achievents of communism and its economy but not for common people to utilize them. Lenin's deformed face accompanied by Stalin who lacks one chromosome (I bet the one who made it perished in a gulag!), Kalinin, one of communist leaders, strongly resembling Trotsky (there's a special explanatory sign beneath, for those who might doubt: Kalinin), tractor caterpillars, five-pointed stars, hammers and sickles and similar propaganda phooey. Then come mammoth tablecloths, immense bedcovers and other colossal thinga-me-bobs of unconceivable application. All this was seemingly woven to mark a communist party congress or to be exhibited at some Expo event - for the people to goggle at them but not to use. What a stark difference to pre-revolutionaly scarfs, pelerines and gloves for dedicated followers of early XX century fashion!
Please, dear museum managers, Russian culture was born not in 1917 - when this communist smog leaves our heads at last?! Aren't there older exemplars of this breathtaking Vologda art? They'll surely draw much more attention and a lot more visitors because they are warmer, more honest and more human.
The staff there was quite nice and friendly and even joked from time to time. Try also their buffet and especially their shanezhki. Don't know what it is? All the more so...

I wasn't real thrilled initially by the thought of a museum of lace but my wife is interested so we of course we went. The collection is amazing and really is a good display of Russian lace made around the Vologda region from the late 1800's until present times. The lace celebrating soviet times and the military was kind of cool. Who knew you could make lace patterns with tractors or paratroopers or tanks. The lace displays made over the last 30 years were really amazing pieces of art. They are incredible especially when you think of the amount of time it takes to make the pieces.

Vologda is well known in Russia for its very unique lace.
Fashion for lace comes and goes.
It is nice to know that something is done on to preserve this unique local art.
The museum possesses relatively small but impressive collection of items produced on Vologda lace fabrics.
Plus, the detailed displays will show a layman how much time and patience goes in to each and every piece.

If you are in to crafts, this museum is a must see.
But even if not, do support the local arts, by stopping by.
I guarantee, you are for a couple of WOWs.

You may ask a guide to tell you about the history of museum and to show the process of making lace as it was done in Vologda, then you go through few rooms of very impressive exposition.
