Ekaterinburg has become the third city of Russia after Moscow and Ufa where the multimedia historical park “Russia – my history” was opened. The inauguration took place in a newly-built two-storey building on 3, September, 2017. The building was especially designed for the museum. It stands on the bank of the river Iset and was constructed in a record-breaking 7 months. It’s surface area is 6700 square meters and it is 17 meters high. It’s hard to call the park a museum as there are no actual artefacts in it: it is fully equipped with sensor tables and screens, lightboxes, tablet computers and by means of projections the history of Russia revives in front of its spectators. Exposition is using such techniques as videoinfographics, animation, 3D modeling and digital reconstructions which attract both children, teenagers and adults. All in all there are four expositions in the park, “Rurik dynasty”, “the Romanovs”, “1914-1945: from the Great Commotion to the Great Victory” and “Russia – my history, 1945-2016”. A special focus is given to Sverdlovsk region, the content of which was elaborated in the course of a year by local historians and regional ethnographers. In addition to the permanent expositions, the multimedia park is planning to hold diverse culturally-educational and recreational events, such as public lectures, contests, adventure games, festivals and meetings with famous people of culture.
