Church Antiquities Museum (Dormition Church)

Located in what was once the Dormition Church is the Church Antiquities Museum.  The former church, which dates from the early 19th century, now displays various items from the many churches in Totma which were closed down after the revolution.  This predominantly includes icons, wooden carvings which once decorated iconostases and items which were used in services.  However the main reasons for visiting is to go up the bell tower from where you can enjoy great views of the city.

The former Dormition Church was part of a complex and immediately next door is the former Resurrection of Christ Church which now, from time to time, is used to hold temporary exhibitions.  Both buildings are run as branches of the Totma Museum Association.
