History of museum
The history of the creation of the museum in Vologda begins in the ХIХ century. The very first museum in the city is house of Peter I, which was opened in 1885.

In 1896, a diocesan ancient storehouse was created in Vologda, which contained antiquities, mainly of religious origin, and documents of the Vologda diocese.

In 1911, an art gallery was created in the city by the Northern Club of Fine Arts. Then, on the initiative of the Vologda Society for the Study of the Northern Territory, the Museum of Homeland Studies was opened.

On March 13, 1923, by the decision of the Vologda Provincial Executive Committee, all the museums of the city were merged into one museum, which became known as the “Vologda State United Museum”.

On the basis of the Vologda Regional Museum of Local Lore, the Vologda State Historical, Architectural and Art Museum-Reserve was established by Decree of the Council of Ministers of the RSFSR on June 29, 88, No. 247.
