The book by Venedikt Erofeev "Moscow-Petushki", which made this small town famous all over the world, played a role in the fate of the Rooster Museum. It was thanks to this work that the creators of the "cock" collection rightly judged that if somewhere a Russian cock will live well, it will be in Petushki. For 20 years, the only museum in the world has been pleasing visitors with its unusual collection, which is replenished with new exhibits from year to year. Museum of Wax Figures in Suzdal.

In one of the halls, there is a curious tantamaresque in human height, copied from the humorous picture "Riding a Sacred Rooster".

The museum was opened on April 29, 1997 thanks to the initiative of the artist, philanthropist and art worker N.I.Kornilov. However, the history of the collection began even earlier - in 1993, when Kornilov and his fellow artists painted a series of works for the coming year of the Rooster. The paintings were exhibited in Moscow, and within a year the project gained unprecedented popularity. The question arose about creating a permanent exhibition, and the choice fell on the town of Petushki, where the museum was opened three years later.

What to Watch

The institution is a small old town in which every street and hut is inhabited, and the main characters - roosters of all colors and sizes - peacefully coexist with other inhabitants of this fabulous world. Birds have moved here from all corners of the planet, and each brought its own unique story with them. Many of them came in the form of images of folk crafts - the museum exhibits works in Khokhloma, haze and Gzhel, Vologda lace, Gorodets, whistles and other amusing products from Vyatka, Vladimir, Tver, Filimonov are also presented. Here you can find a wide variety of roosters - made of glass and beads, ceramic and iron, stone, fabric, of different colors and sizes, drawn, sculpted, cut out and even alive, amaze guests with their songs.

The guides will answer the most curious questions about roosters, for example, why do they need spurs, and how a roasted rooster can peck.

There are several themed streets and squares in the town: for example, on the Street of Eternal Truths, visitors will be told what appeared first, a chicken or an egg. There is also a corner of Russian antiquities, where objects of folk life (samovar, spinning wheels, tuyeski) and elements of the national Russian costume (dresses, bast shoes) are exhibited. The museum will tell you why to paint eggs, how roosters from different countries crow, show roosters and polygamous roosters, tell a fairy tale and play a special cock show. In the halls of temporary exhibitions, master classes on woodcarving, clay painting, making bracelets and handmade cards are held.
