Soligorsk Museum of Local Lore is distinguished by its interior decoration. The interior reminds that the museum is located in the potassium capital of Belarus: the building itself is made in the form of a mine. Low ceilings, fixing blocks, rounded edges of side orange-red show-windows (the color of potassium salt) – so the corresponding image is created.

In total, there are 3 halls in the museum: an exhibition hall, a hall of nature and ecology, as well as an exhibition hall. The latter, in turn, includes sections “Ethnography”, “20s – the beginning of the 40s”, “Our land in the years of the Great Patriotic War”, “Post-war reconstruction and development”, “History of the city of Soligorsk.”

The section “Ethnography” acquaints visitors with the culture of peasants of the late XIX – early XX century, who lived in this region. By the way, it is through the urban village of Starobin, which is located in the Soligorsk district, that the conditional border passes, which divides the two ethno-zones – Central Belarus and Polesie. Therefore, this region is so interesting for researchers. The exposition presents the tools of work and life of peasants, folk clothes.
