Nowadays, the museum collection includes hundreds of exhibits that preserve the memories of the local landmarks, starting from the IV century B.C. to the present day.
Special attention is given to the tzar settlement of Tayninskoye, the history of the first Mytischi – Moscow aqueduct; the Marfino, Nikolo-Prozorovo and Rozhdestvenno-Suvorovo manors, the unique Russian folk artistic craft from Fedoskino and Zhostovo, and the newest history of Mytischi.
