Soligorsky Museum of Local Lore
The museum was founded in 1976 . Its doors were opened to visitors on August 11, 1984. The Soligorsk Museum of Local Lore is notable for the fact that there are no similar museums in Belarus in terms of interior design. The room structurally resembles drifts in a mine: the ceiling is lowered, mounting blocks are visible, the edges of the side showcases are rounded, their color is orange-red (the color of rock salt). The following sections of the exposition are presented for visitors: "Ethnography" with subsections "Culture and life of Belarusians", "Folk crafts and crafts"; "Our region during the Great Patriotic War"; "Post-war reconstruction and development"; "The history of the city of Soligorsk"; "Nature and Ecology" with the subsection "Geology", which is dedicated to the discovery and development of the Starobinsky potash salt deposit. The museum has 24 collections. The most significant collections are: archeology (stone tools of the II-I millennia BC), ethnography (household items of peasants of the XIX - early XX, objects of folk weaving), art (icons of the late XVIII-XIX centuries). As of January 1, 2022, the museum has 18,402 museum items. Museum visitors are offered sightseeing and thematic excursions.
