Klichevsky Museum of Local Lore
The first thing a visitor sees when opening the door to the Klichevsky Museum of Local Lore is a stylized exhibition complex "open book". On its pages are the words of F. Skoriny about a person's deep attachment to the place where he was born:

"... The animals that walk in the desert know their holes,

Birds flying through the air, know their nests…

So are the people where they were born and nurtured by God's will,

They have great love for that place..."

As if turning the pages of this conditional book, you, dear visitor, have the opportunity to get acquainted with different periods of the history of the region. 

The archeology hall is an opportunity to "travel back" to the distant past: to find out which Slavic tribes inhabited the local lands, to see the tools, weapons and household items of ancient man, his jewelry, to imagine what our distant ancestors looked like. A set of women's jewelry is of particular value. One of the most unique and interesting finds is a pendant-medallion with the image of a bird holding a bunch of grapes in its beak.

The exposition of the hall "River and Man" will tell about the flora and fauna of reservoirs, industrial enterprises that operated on the coast of the Olsa River at the beginning of the twentieth century.

The exhibition presents household items, unique samples of costumes, handbrakes, bedding made by the hands of Belarusian women. With such love, the patterns woven and embroidered almost 100 years ago give a unique opportunity to get acquainted with the language of symbols that our ancestors-farmers possessed. When conducting excursions in the hall, elements of theatricalization and reconstruction of historical events are actively used, listening to ritual Belarusian songs performed by the children's folklore group "Kupalochka". 

The hall "Holy Faces of Eternity" gives the visitor an opportunity to get in touch with the spiritual heritage of Belarusians. Here are the objects of the cult of Christians: Orthodox icons, crucifixes, candlesticks, church utensils, the gospel. A significant part of the presented collection was transferred to the museum by the Brest Customs.

Hall "History of the Klichevskaya partisan zone".

The collection of exhibits presented in the exposition allows you to fully reveal the theme of the partisan movement. In this hall, history speaks to the visitor not only through photographs and documents. There are many objects - witnesses of the fighting, both partisans and soldiers and officers of the German army, which allow you to touch the events of that distant war. Among the artifacts: captured and partisan weapons, household items of partisans and soldiers of the German army, orders and medals of soldiers of the Red Army, a collection of awards and insignia of the Third Reich, sculpture and painting.

At the beginning of the twentieth century. on the Klichev lands there was such a phenomenon as a winter garden. He was a wonderful feature of the estate of the landowner Nezabytovsky. Among a large number of exotic plants, surrounded by art and antiques, the local nobility had a pleasant time: they listened to music and arranged balls. The winter garden of the museum presents authentic collectibles of the late XIX- early XX century: samples of furniture, musical instruments, dishes, watches, edged weapons, typewriters, etc.
