The Ethnic Diversity of Russia

Not to be confused with the Kunstkamera, this museum focuses on the cultural heritage of the 157 ethnic groups found in historical Russia and neighboring countries. These groups can be found in the European area, Siberia, the Far East, Caucasus and Crimea.

More than 700,000 artifacts and photographs, from the 18th century to the present day, tell the stories of these peoples. In addition to the galleries, there is an active program of special exhibitions. This is more than just a static museum. Young visitors can go to The Studio for lessons in the legends and songs of different ethnic groups, or take part in the activities in the School of Crafts. Adults are invited to attend the Tuesday evening lectures to learn more about the diversity of the people of Russia and neighboring nations.
