Cherven District Historical and Regional Studies Museum

The decision to set up the museum was taken on 27 November 1991. The museum was opened for visitors on 1 September 1992. The museum contains 7,740 items in the main fund and 1,131 items in the research additional fund (2012). The exposition of the museum is located in three halls: "The Ancient Igumen", "The Great Patriotic War in Cherven", "The Cultural Achivements of Cherven". From the first steps, the visitors find themselves in the magic world of the old legends. These old legends tell us about the origin of the town of Igumen and its development, its history, which in 1923 turned it into Cherven. Visitors get acquainted with the materials of the excavations. In the exposition of the museum, there are a great number of the items linked with the activities of partisans. There are also a number of materials dedicated to our famous countrymen, such as Stanislav Manushko (the composer), Khaim Sutin (the artist), famous writers and other figures of science and culture. The museum regularly delivers exhibitions from its own funds and funds of other museums. There is the special museum pedagogical program "My native place is called Belarus". Every year research conferences are held. There is the local history club "Bonda".
