26th October Clandestine Bolshevik Publishing House

This is one of the most unusual museums of Moscow. During the First Russian revolution they produced illegal handouts and a social-risunok3democratic newspaper.

The museum opened in 1924 and was created by people who used to work there. The museum is a unique monument of political Russian history; telling us about the illegal underground activity of the Bolshevik party.

Their cover at the time was as a shop selling fruit from the Caucus.

The printing area itself is in a hidden cave dug out of the ground. It still has an authentic typing machine. The entrance looks like a warehouse filled with boxes of fruit. The propaganda and paperwork was hidden in the bottom of the fruit boxes.

Cost: 2500 rub

We meet at Belorusskaya (exit from the green line) at 13.40h
