On October 24, 1903, Comrade (Deputy) Minister N.P. Lukyanov approved the Charter of the museum.
By the beginning of the 1920s, the museum had natural history, October, school, archive departments, and a library. The museum was headed by the teacher of the Temnikovskaya school, E.N. Fleerina. This museum was closed in 1956, and all its exhibits were transferred to the Republican Museum of Local Lore (Saransk).

Ushakov, organized a new museum on a voluntary basis, which by the Decree of the Council of Ministers of the MASSR of September 18, 1968 became a branch of the Republican Museum of Local Lore and was named "F.F. Ushakov Museum of Local Lore".
