This is a high-tech exposition compared to others based in a museum. The exposition has two multimedia information booths that complement and refine materials of the exposition. It is equipped with sound technology — the exposition will be accompanied by Penza songs, tunes of folk musical instruments.
The collection also has interactive exhibits that can be touched.
