The Museum of the University History

The Museum of the University History began to take shape from the foundation of the School of Civil Engineers (UGI, 1832). In the post-October years, it became the museum of the engineering school. The Great Patriotic War interrupted the history of the museum, which resumed its work in the postwar years. The history of the now Museum began with a small exhibition about the heroism of the teachers, students and staff of LISI during the war, which was opened in April 1970. The Museum Council had been working for a year on creating a new museum exposition corresponding to the modern conditions and the requirements of museum practice.

The museum collections include a documentary fund on the history of the university, a fund of photographs, a fund of banners, a physical fund and a fund of architectural projects, which is currently being formed. Today the exposition and funds of the museum tell about the past and present of the university, serve as a basis for the thematic and excursion routes, research and educational work on the history of the university, architectural and construction science and practice, contribute to the patriotic education of new generations of students.
