Yelabuga's City History Museum was founded in 1980 and since 2007 it has been located in a mansion which once belonged to the Nikolaev merchant family. During the relocation the museum was completely revamped and interactive elements were added, for which it has won several awards. The museum has exhibits on the prehistoric era up to modern day. The museum also includes a workshop where you can watch people making traditional souvenirs and even take part in a master class yourself. Located in the same building as the museum is the Traktir Museum-Theatre which recreates a 19th century restaurant and serves traditional Russian and Tatar cuisine. Next door there is also an exhibition hall. The museums are run as part of the Yelabuga State Historical, Architectural and Art Museum-Reserve.
