A museum with an unusual proposal: a journey through the history of bread. Actually really interesting!
It might seem a bit strange that Saint Petersburg would have a museum dedicated to bread. However, it isn't that odd when you think that bread has been a staple part of our diet since prehistoric times. Wondering what you might actually see here? This museum takes you back to the very origins of bread, explains how the Ancient Egyptians baked bread and covers the production of bread over the course of Russian history. You can also see the machines used to make bread in the soviet era and the 250-gram rations. It can't hurt to learn a bit more about something most of us eat on a daily basis and you're sure to be in for a few surprises. Adult entry costs around 100 roubles (2 euros) and the museum is open Monday to Friday from 10:00 to 16:00. The closest metro is Vosstaniya Square.
