THE MUSEUM OF LICEUM №57
The Museum of Lyceum № 57 (the city of Rostov-on-Don), named after a Hero of the Soviet Union Andrei Belgin, has been functioning for over 35 years.
The postbellum years were the time of dynamic searching activities so popular amongst teachers and students. A huge contribution in the school museum development has been made by the teachers N. Gavrilenco (a World War II veteran), V. Gavrilenco, Z. Barchulova, and many others.
Under their direction, the students engaged in data collection, helping establish the museum named after a School # 57 graduate A. Belgin. The guys did active correspondence with Belgin’s brothers in arms and had gathered valuable information about the Great Patriotic War. They organized trips to the places of the Battle of Kursk, and numerous meetings with Belgin’s relatives. The Belgin Museum opened its doors for visitors in 1979.
The Museum Space is currently the Lyceum Patriotic Education Center, launched for the students to help them learn about the rich history of the institution, its graduates as well as Belgin’s life and exploits. The exposition features more than 300 unique articles, including helmets, bullet shells, and gas masks dating back to the Great Patriotic War; a huge number of documents, photographs, and award letters.
