To understand and to fall in love with the city of Vladivostok, which had been changing during its entire history, you have to come to the Main Museum in the city. Today this place is the biggest and fullest exhibition complex, which is changeable, mobile, a real mix of traditional and modern museum technologies. Unique cult things, that belong to Balhae Kingdom and Chjurchjyeni Golden Empire, artifacts of the period when Far Eastern territory was just found and settled are also very interesting. One of the special museum projects is the book-exhibition >, which is based on letters and photos that reflect a whole epoch. When you've touched history of the region in the exhibition space, you can go out to hte Vladivostok streets. The best navigator for you is museum, which can offer you bus and walking tours around the city and Russian Island. To remember Vladivostok you can buy nice souvenirs and books in Museum shop.

If you are interested in history of this region, this museum is very enough for you. It treats history about Asian minor ethnics before Russians came here, and also for history of Russian here. Also, I recommend you if you can not read any Russian,...More

Not every thins is in English but the museum gives a good overview of the conquest of the far East. The exhibition is quite interactive.

I do not understand why there are so many things about this museum in the list. I think that visiting Vladivostok and not visiting it will render a very much different perspective of the city, much poorer. Let us be clear, the museum is not...More
