The exhibition, which includes more than two hundred exhibits from around the world, located in a small cozy building that residents Zelenogradsk has been dubbed the House of Angels.
"Not so long ago visited is located in the neighborhood Lithuanian Kaunas, at the Museum of devils, - he told the newspaper LOOK project author Irina Klochkova. - The huge building, a long history - but was somehow not on itself from empty shabby halls of the museum. The dirt under the border lay a small wooden angel with Christmas tree ... to get up, wrapped in a napkin. Thus was born the idea of the museum. I decided that the angels are better than the devils. "
As I explained Klochkova, yet not numerous collection (in which many works of authorship presented) is rapidly replenished, and almost every exhibit has a romantic story. Among the unique - Leningrad angel, a gift the popularly favorite Alisa Freundlich.
