National museum of Yuri Gagarin was opened on January 5, 1965, as a memorial room (ex-German language classroom) in the industrial-pedagogical college. Yuri Gagarin visited the opening ceremony, which was held on the 20th anniversary of the founding of the College.
Later the collection became bigger and museum moved to the ex-canteen building. The Ministry of Culture of the Russian Federation ranked this museum as a «National Museum».
Museum's exhibitions include Gagarin’s written application to the director with a request to enroll him in College, autobiography, various student’s documents and letters.
