The A.S. Popov Central Museum of Communications in St. Petersburg inaugurated an exhibition, ‘145 years in the service of science and culture’, organized with the support of the RSCC. The exhibition will be open from September 11 to October 16, 2017.
The inauguration of the 6th All-Russian Conference of Communication Museums, the theme of which this year was ‘Communication Museums: the continuum of generations’, included the cancellation of twelve pictorial postcards specifically issued by the Federal Communications Agency and Marka JSC for the 145th anniversary of the Communications Museum.
As its anniversary gift, the RSCC presented to the Communications Museum a model of the Express-AM8 satellite to be added to the Museum's exhibit devoted to space communications.
The RSCC and A.S. Popov Central Museum of Communications have worked together for years. Thanks to such cooperation RSCC enjoys various opportunities to contribute to the preservation of the communications industry heritage for the benefit of future generations, and to implement various projects of great cultural, historical, and educational value. In 2016, to mark the 55th anniversary of Yuri Gagarin’s space mission, the Communications Museum - with the support of the RSCC - held a philatelic exhibition ‘Space Communications’ and an exhibition ‘They have connected the world’ focusing on networks and communication lines. Also held was the 9th scientific conference in memory of A.S. Popov, timed to the national Day of Radio. A catalog was also published on ‘The history of television as exhibited at the A.S. Popov Museum’. This year, which became a jubilee for both organizations, the RSCC supported the generation and opening of the exhibition "Russia's contribution to the international standardization of digital television broadcasting", prepared on the basis of unique documents and photographs from the archive of the Radio Research Institute and Professor M. I. Krivosheev’s personal archive.
In October 2017, the A.S. Popov Museum will host an exhibition dedicated to the 50th anniversary of the RSCC.
