The collection of models can be traced back to 1773 when the Mining School was opened, with the primary purpose being to help Russian students in handling mining and engineering equipment.

The models were brought from the best European manufacturers and Russian factories, made in the workhouses of the Mining Institute and the Mint, delivered from both Russian and global industrial exhibitions.

Today, the collection represents the history of the development of the mining industry from the beginning to the present day.
