Дом-Музей Керамики Имени Новикова

Ceramic artist Novikov made a museum of his works in his own house, grouping the exhibits by themes and techniques. During his life he independently conducted excursions where he told guests about each exhibit: about wall dishes, vases and panels, about tiled fireplaces and stoves, about interior compositions. Today the wife of the artist cherishes his heritage and tells the visitors of the museum the most interesting facts about the life and work of the master. The museum has a ceramics school, where you can create a small masterpiece and take it with you. *The museum is open daily, but you have to sign up for tours in advance. You can do this by phone at [site](https://yurinovikov.ru/kontakty/).* After the tour, take a walk in the garden and enjoy the beauty of the place.
