In the mid of the 2000s heirs of a radiochemist Boris Kurchatov, father of the Soviet nuclear bomb, decided to sell his apartment. All his belongings would be thrown away but his neighbours didn’t let it happen. They kept the stuff and later the local housing cooperative rented the premise of the former shop nearby and made an exhibition there. In course of time the collection was supplemented by items from other apartments.
