His collection consists of the subjects of Tula samovar production, made in the 18 - 20th century. Varied in form and function samovars demonstrate the skill and creativity of the Tula samovar factories. The exposition of the museum shows us the history of origin and development of one of the most famous trades -samovars production. The first hall tells about the samovar production In Tula at the end of the XVIII-XlX th. centuries". Among the unique samovars of the 18 th. century there are sbitennik - the vessel for making sbiten - the drink made of herbs, spices and honey. The differentiation of samovars according to the purpose was very wide: samovars for boiling water, samovars-coffee-pots, portable samovars, etc. The memorial subject complexes belonging to the samovar dynasties of the Batashev, Fomin Shemarin, Teyle occupy an important place in the museum.
