City Museums, Horlivka: 2 reviews and 10 photos
Razumov Miniature Book Museum is located in the building of the city library at 132A Victory Avenue.
It?s a good idea to make an appointment before paying a visit and having a guided tour.
The museum has a small hall with exhibitions of miniature books and microbooks.
The museum collection comprises 8,500 books now, among them 7,008 books were presented by the museum founder Benjamin Razumov (1915-2001) who had collected such books for decades. He left his entire collection by will to the city in 1991.
It?s a unique museum, the only one of such kind in Ukraine.
It has books published in 57 countries in 103 languages. These are both ancient and modern, handwritten and printed books.
You can even see a unique book called speck of dust whose dimensions are sixty times smaller than a poppy seed. You can see the book through the microscope and read two poems by Alexander Pushkin there.
Contact Ms.Gallina Nikolayenko, director.
