The museum – situated in a prime heritage building that used to be a marketplace – has closed for reconstruction. While this location remains closed some of the exhibits moved to the museum's second outlet, at 11 Vokzalnaya Magistral. While the museum was still open it was a curious place to visit. Siberian is the history of late colonization: the resettlement of Imperial Russians into these hostile geographic conditions. The highlights of the exhibition include complete mummified mammoths (found aplenty in Siberia), local gentry memorabilia, recreations of historic interiors, and costumes of indigenous populations that once roamed these steppes and taiga.
The captions and all instructions are in Russian.
