The Museum opened its doors in honor of the 100th anniversary of the October Revolution on November 9, 2017.
The railway station design was done by the Tula branch of the Moscow Railway (part of RZD) along with the local government and Kimovsky District Administration. By the way, both the settlement and the station are named after the Young Communist International (abbreviated in Russian as KIM).
Passengers, people meeting and seeing others off and just visitors can take a brief look at the history of the Yepifan station and nearby villages in the concourse and see the Museum exhibition whose goal is to show the impact that the railway and the revolutionary epoch, that altered the course of both the Russian and global history, had on the destiny of the small village of Mikhailovka.
The Museum exhibition is associated with three dates celebrated in 2017: the 100th anniversary of the October Revolution, the 108th anniversary of railway in Russia, and the 140th anniversary of Felix Dzerzhinsky’s birthday. Many are surprised by Dzerzhinsky’s connection with the Museum. Come visit it, and a Museum employee will tell you some little-known facts and events of that time.
