“When in mammoth country do not miss the mammoth museum”
Reviewed August 8, 2013

I had no trouble occupying an hour or more in this museum with its mammoth displays and extensive documentation of the regional and its natural history. It is quite permitted to take mammoth ivory out of Russia, but it was never clear whether it was an acceptable import into other countries: was it an endangered species, or because it is extent does its ivory count differently to that of elephant? Some of the ivory carving were outstanding but I chose to look and admire without buying.

“Informative and interesting exhibition!”
Reviewed February 26, 2013

Interesting background in natural history of the region. Ask staff to show you the frozen mammoths.
Yakutsk is in an area with permafrost, so very special to visit.
