Museum of Bread

Located in part of an office building a few minutes' walk from Finland Station, this unusual little museum - there are only twelve others in the world - provides a history of bread-making in St. Petersburg and the world. Exhibits include a variety of historic baking tools, packaging from baked products, and a reconstruction of a small St. Petersburg bakery of the 19th century. There are also several examples of traditional Russian bread, buns, and biscuits on display, including a section devoted to baking during the Second World War, which includes an example of the 125g per capita daily ration distributed during the Siege of Leningrad.
