UrBC, Yekaterinburg, September 13, 2016. Ural Vagon Zavod Corporation’s Exhibition Hall opened for visitors at night time for the first time in the head plant’s history. This was a family night modeled on the Long Night of Museums event at Ural Vagon Zavod’s armored vehicle and history museums.

According to the company press service, over five hundred people came to the event coordinated in celebration of the corporation’s 80th anniversary.

‘The family night took place on the eve of Tankman’s Day. This is the 70th time it has been celebrated, with a historic reenactment of the very first workers’ march on September 8, 1946 by actors from I.V. Okunev Palace of Culture to open the event. The production team worked with the plant’s archives and looked into the historic details, so they recreated the setting of the times and performed the actual speeches by the plant’s then Communist Party Organizer Konstantin Petukhov, plant director Semyon Skachkov, and others,’ the press service says.

The presentation of the new book UVZ: Plant and Museum and a historic quest proved the event’s two key features. The quest participants were able to learn more about the plant’s eighty-year-long history and find out something new and interesting for themselves. The quest players were groups of adults and children, who managed to cope with all the given tasks together.
