The exhibition has been made up from items stored in the museum as well as those provided by Glushkov’s family. Its exhibits are unique, being not only the memorabilia of a specific person, but reflections of a particular era, too. Visitors can see Glushkov’s certificate of graduation from high school with excellent grades in all subjects, original of his mother’s death certificate stating she was murdered by the Gestapo during the German occupation, the scientist’s personal notebook, opened on the page with phone numbers of Nikolay Bogolyubov, an eminent physicist and mathematician, and Leonid Brezhnev, Secretary General of Communist Party of the USSR, as well as his personal eyeglasses. Moreover, the exhibits include abaci, early computers and the first Soviet personal computers, Glushkov’s creations. Recordings of the academician’s voice are among the most interesting exhibits, featuring excerpts from his lectures and speeches at various academic and social events. Thus, visitors to the exhibition can listen to the voice of the eminent scientist.
To learn more about the researcher’s personality and get to know not only Glushkov the scientist, but also Glushkov the family man, one would do well to read an interview with his daughter Vira Glushkova, published in the 12th issue of Den’s glossy supplement Route No. 1, entitled Ukrainians Who Have Changed the World. Having done so, one would go to the exhibition already well-equipped with knowledge.
