Exhibition of badges “75 Years of the City Life”

Event duration:
from 14 May 2021 to 30 September 2021

A new exhibition dedicated to the main topic of the Night of Museums – "Steps of Time" for the 75th anniversary of the Kaliningrad region has been opened in the museum.

Witnesses of that epoch, the history were simple badges. This utilitarian item was produced as souvenirs for the memory of some event, victory in a contest, journey, conference...

Badges from the Kaliningrad region are special. Amber, symbol of the Baltic's, appearing to Kaliningrad citizens rather ordinary, was often used to produce them. An amber insert not only made them more aesthetically and rich-looking, but also turned a banal souvenir into almost a piece of jewellery.

Due to the presence of amber, a badge became a unique object that let define immediately where the item was made and in which region an event was held.

The badges were produced for business meetings and conferences, celebrations and competitions taking place in the Kaliningrad region. Anniversaries of the region foundation and history of some institutions were reflected in them.

There was a tradition to order badges with amber as a gift for young graduates.

Tourists and guests of the city took with pleasure such souvenir as a piece of Kaliningrad, memories of the time on the Baltic coast.

You are welcome to visit the exhibition within the permanent display until 30 September.
