Museum of Russian Police / Militsiya
« on: April 18, 2010, 09:42:37 AM »
People in the Leningrad went to look at the regulators, as at the actors.
In a country where detectives in popularity can not compare with any other literature, where some guards are heroes every second of the series, Museum of the police should enjoy great popularity. Nevertheless, the museum in the St. Petersburg did not know many. Although its exposition tells about the real stories, the plot on which trenchant literary fiction.
Thieves, robbers, murderers appeared in St. Petersburg not under Soviet rule. They were under the czarist regime. Therefore, the first exhibition focuses on the pre-revolutionary period. Criminal Investigation Division began its work in 1866, and was led by Ivan Poutilin.
Nineties, which we like to remember as spirited gangster time - baby talk compared with the post-revolutionary era.
There is a stand for the famous Leningrad regulator. He was so nice to drive traffic that he had been specifically watched by orgonized groups from all over the city.

Criminology city on the Neva worked wonders. And without any computer technology. Using the found skull, they could restor the appearance of the deceased, so much so that the family immediately recognized. Well, and then capture the killers had already been a matter of technique.

Then was not fun to watch detectives with false stories.

This is the fourth similar museum in our city. The first was opened in the building of police detective on the street, Officer in 1902. In 1917 it burned the revolutionary masses. In 1925 in Leningrad Museum opened criminal investigation. He lasted almost to the Great Patriotic War. And publicly accessible. Guide for tourists for 1939 proposed to visit its halls.

After the Victory the criminology Museum was opened . But it was used exclusively for educational purposes: it prevents even not all police officers.

In 1960, the Leningrad police department moved from the Palace Square to the Big House on Foundry Ave. New Museum of Criminology opened nearby on Shpalernaya. To get invited professional artists. But for ordinary citizens, he was closed. And only in 1977 started the current Museum of the militsia.
