Sports Museum – in the big city

Date: March 31, 2023 Time: 08:33:05


The State Sports Museum has now taken root in St. Petersburg. This is an event for the city. I met almost every local sportswriter I met that day in the halls of the museum. Why are there journalists! Olympic champions of different years, deputy governor Boris Piotrovsky, the head of the Legislative Assembly Alexander Belsky – they all came here off duty.

“We are pleased that this museum has opened in such impressive interiors, in this unique building on the embankment of the Moika River,” Oleg Matytsin, Minister of Sports, shares his impressions. – The museum, which will not only be educational, but will also have a great motivating effect on the younger generation. If, leaving these halls, young people go to sports grounds, to stadiums, then this exhibition was not organized in vain.

– We are not just a classical museum where you came – looked – to the left, – continues the theme of the director of the State Sports Museum Elena Istyagina-Eliseeva. – Our museum is interactive, technologically advanced, where you can participate in a quest, take a “lesson in the museum”. We hold meetings with Olympic champions, legends of the sport.


I would like to return to the issue of the building. The museum is located not only near the iconic places of the center of the northern capital, but also in the unique interiors of a recognized architectural monument. The last owner of this mansion before the revolution was the mining prince Semyon Abamelek-Lazarev.

The exposition presents more than 500 unique artifacts: these are award cups and memorial objects of athletes, natives of the city on the Neva.
