Overview

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.

The museum is quite interesting and holds a nice collection of soviet/Lenin memorabilia as well as some interactive parts. Not a lot is translated into English, so if you don't speak russian, get ready to be creative!
