Museum of Sailors

The museum acquaints its visitors with the history of the Russian navy, starting from the epoch of Peter I to our days. A significant part of the exposition is devoted to the Totma merchant-sailors and their journeys to the Pacific Ocean in the second half of the XVIII century. "Whoever did not go to the sea, did not see the grief and never prayed to God," read the Pomorian proverb. Expeditions and the subsequent development of the northern resources made the Totma merchants very rich allowing for erection of unique temples. One of the exhibition halls of the museum is dedicated to our contemporaries: Hero of Russia Sergei Preminin, poet Nikolai Rubtsov, people who served in the Navy nowadays. During the summer period the second floor of the cathedral is open for various exhibitions. Guests can visit bell tower, from which you can enjoy an amazing and fascinating bird's-eye view of the city.
