Every year on May 7, students and graduates of the radio faculty of Ural State Technology Institute clean the monument and then hold a festive procession along Lenin Avenue ending at Popov’s monument. In 1986 the Museum of Radio, named after Popov, opened in Ekaterinburg. It is located in the house where the scientist lived with his elder sister and her husband.
