The historic monuments of Tyumen are an integral part of the historical and cultural landscape of the city, especially those of them that have the status of the objects of the cultural heritage of the federal significance.

The relevance of this topic lies in commemorative marks being one of the sources of the formation of historical memory. For the first time, there is an attempt to study the commemorative potential using the example of a limited number of cultural heritage sites in Tyumen and compare with its current state.

A comprehensive study of the history of these objects allows identifying their commemorative potential, while the comprehension of the current state of their memorialization aids in developing specific proposals for perpetuating significant events for them.

Using the principles of objectivity and historicism, the authors have studied memorial plaques. Today, they are the only type of commemorative signs located on the cult cultural heritage sites of federal significance in Tyumen. Their texts contain information exclusively about the events of religious life. The reason for this may be the fact that the initiative to install all the memorial signs came from the representatives of the church.

The events related to the history of the iconic monuments of Tyumen were grouped into thematic blocks. They reflect the connection of these objects with facts from the life of indivi­duals or with the history of the most memorial place. This allows formulating more clearly their proposals for the memorialization of historic objects of cultural heritage of federal significance in Tyumen.

It should be noted that the issue of the current state and prospects of memorialization of the historic objects of cultural heritage of regional significance in Tyumen requires a special study.
