History of foundation

Historical & Local Lore Museum of Chernomorskoye (now a department of Crimean Republican Institution “Historical-Archeological Preserve “Kalos Limen”) was unveiled in 1987.

Idea to create this museum had been around since 1960s and belongs to Alexander Shcheglov, the famous archeologist and leader of the Tarkhankut archeological expedition, who studied this region for many years. 

Soon, after a decision to create a museum in townlet of Chernomorskoye was approved by a decree issued by regional committee of the party and executive committee, the main tasks and goals were formed, responsible people were appointed and location for the new museum was chosen – an old maternity hospital.

Cultural and educational activity of the newly created museum was based on its exhibitions which consisted of six sections:

  • “Ancient Past of Tarkhankut”;
  • “History of Aqmeçit in the 18-19th
  • “Establishment of the Soviet Rule”;
  • “Aqmeçit during the Great Patriotic War”; 
  • “Developed Socialism”;
  • “Chernomorskoye Region Today”.

Today exhibitions of the museum are focused on local lore and are firmly connected with nature, history, and culture of Chernomorskoye region. 

In 2001, Historical & Local Lore Museum of Chernomorskoye was included into Historical-Archeological Preserve “Kalos Limen” and became its department.
