Peter the Great Museum of Ethnography and Anthropoly

This museum is commonly known under its Russian name ”Kunstkamera” (curiosity chamber). Built on the initiative of Peter the Great, its building on the Neva River banks is made of two wings linked together by a tower surmounted with a baroque dome. It was completed in 1734. Today, the Museum of ethnography and anthropology belongs to the Russian Academy of Science. Its thousands of items are witnesses of the cultural and ethnic variety of the world. It also contains an anatomic section dedicated to the abnormalities that can affect both men and animals. Finally, another part tells the story of the Kunstkamera and explains the scientific progress of Russia throughout the 18th century.
