New Uralkali Museum in Berezniki

New Uralkali Museum in Berezniki

On 5 April 2013, Uralkali opened a new museum in Berezniki dedicated to the history of the potash industry. It is the first of its kind in Russia, and is part of the existing museum and exhibition centre which unites two museum sites in Berezniki and Solikamsk.

Uralkali’s museum in Berezniki was first opened in 1993 as part of an initiative by the Company’s CEO of the time. The opening of a new museum exposition is significant not only for Uralkali, but also for the towns of Berezniki and Solikamsk, where several generations of people are connected to the history of the potash producer.

Vladislav Baumgertner, CEO of Uralkali; Sergey Dyakov, the mayor of Berezniki; and Tatiana Zubareva, a representative of the Ministry for Culture, Youth Politics and Mass Communications of the Perm Region, attended the opening ceremony.

Uralkali adopted a completely new approach to the organisation of exhibition space. One of the museum’s most attractive features is its innovative use of multimedia content. There are plasma touch-screens in each room which provide detailed information on the history of potash deposits in the Urals, the emergence and development of salt production in Verkhnekamye, and the development of the potash industry in Russia.

The new museum’s collection contains 22,000 exhibits, with more than 8,500 items of particular historical value. This includes a unique collection of paleontological and geological pieces, antique household objects, and possessions of well-known industry workers.
