Thank you so much for the wonderful review! You are always welcome to our museum for longer journeys around the numerous exhibitions. We are now working on translating the signage into English, so when you are back, they will be there!

Lot of exhibition about the north and life there. U can see typical north artists. Nice interiors of old trade yards. Every month they have a new exhibition last we came was about illusions - a lot of stunning picture we've got from it

The building is part of the old merchants' yards. It is nicely renovated and has many nice exhibits (coins, tapestries, some amazing relics from the Orthodox church, history of the city, etc). All the signage is in Russian.
