Established in autumn 2010, the Lace Museum was visited by 250,000 people interested in lace-making. The museum hosts several expositions in nearly 600 sq m of exhibition space. The exhibition extends over two levels and covers all ages of lace-making from the early 17th century – showcasing gorgeous and rare hand-made designs, to later industrial production and through to contemporary lace presented in haute couture.

Inspired by the properties of lace, the organizers of the museum are keen to combine fashion, technology and traditional handicraft together under one roof creating a comprehensive and inspiring journey into the fascinating fabric.

The Vologda Oblast has a legacy of lace making that goes back centuries, but the area received a building to celebrate the tradition only five years ago. It is located near the most ancient architectural ensemble – the picturesque Vologda Kremlin.
