Moscow Chess Museum

I think this was one of the clips shown during breaks of the live broadcast for a recent World Championship. The guide is Dmitry Oleynikov, 'Supervisor of Chess Museum'.

Chess Museum in Moscow (5:22) • 'A glance on the fantastic insides of Russian Chess Federation Museum in Moscow (Gogolevsky Boulevard 14)'

At first I thought it was shown during the 2012 Anand - Gelfand match in Moscow, but a Peter Doggers' article, Russia's First Chess Museum Opens in Moscow (chess.com), is dated 28 September 2014, more than two years after that match. Was it for the second Carlsen - Anand match?
