The Museum of Local History of Gulkevichsky District was founded in 1977. Initially, it was a local museum of military and labor glory, and the basis of its exposition was materials about fellow countrymen who took part in the Great Patriotic War, home front workers, as well as materials, documents related to the name of the Hero of the Soviet Union, pilot-cosmonaut V.V. Gorbatko, with his cosmic feat that glorified his small homeland - Gulkevichsky district.

The founder of the museum was the participant of the Great Patriotic War, Honored Worker of Culture of the Russian Soviet Federative Socialist Republic E.S. Smyk. Later, the museum was run by a member of the Union of Journalists of the USSR, former editor of the regional newspaper "Prikubanskaya Spark", E.M. Heresko.

One of the main activities of the museum is exhibition work, combining various exhibition genres: collection and thematic exhibitions held both in the halls of the museum and on exhibition sites outside its walls. The museum has four showrooms. These are halls dedicated to the history of the Great Patriotic War, the Soviet period of the history of our country, space exploration. Unique is the hall in which visitors get acquainted with the history of traditional and ceremonial Russian dolls. This is the author’s project of the Museum Researcher T.I. Chernova, whose hands made more than 150 unique dolls.

Now the museum’s collections contain the most valuable exhibits and documents relating to the history of the district, territory and country. A special pride of the museum - exhibits donated by the Cosmonaut Training Center named after Yu.A. Gagarin, including a 5-meter model of the TMA ship, a lander, tablets with photographs telling about the preparation of astronauts for flights, cosmonaut overalls and many more, which cause great interest among visitors.
