Gingerbread Museum Moscow

Gingerbread Museum – A magic museum

Quite recently, as I was walking in the small streets in the center of Moscow, I came across this tiny museum. It was the “Gingerbread Museum”, and I liked it from the beginning. When I entered the small rooms of the museum, I gasped – I found myself in a fairytale! There were some real masterpieces of gingerbread work along the walls. For example, a gingerbread imperial palace, a medieval castle, painted gingerbread and cozy Christmas houses. It is known that the Russian city of Tula is famous for its gingerbread, but, as it turns out, it’s also made in Kovrov town, in Vyazma town and in Moscow. By the way, “Gingerbread Museum” gingerbreads are made following the pre-revolutionary recipe!

Also, it is possible to learn to paint gingerbreads in this museum, but you need to pay for it. Or you can buy an already-finished product as a gift. I think it can be an excellent souvenir.  Frankly speaking, I’m surprised that I’ve learned so much about gingerbreads in such a small Moscow museum. Therefore, I would suggest everyone go there to listen to the stories by the friendly owner of the museum and to try to paint gingerbread!
