Peter the Great Museum of Anthropology and Ethnography (the Kunstkamera)

Another famous St. Petersburg Museum — the Kunstkamera — also began with a private collection, but of a different kind. Adopting foreign experience, Peter I became interested in natural Sciences and had a "Cabinet of curiosities" with anatomical and natural curiosities.

The tsar was especially interested in anomalies of development: the Cabinet of curiosities diligently collecting different from the norm animals, plants and people. For an impressionable people it is better to pass the pickled babies, but instead take a look at the Mongolian Yurt, the layout of the traditional houses of Indonesian people minangkabau, painted Japanese dolls (kokeshi), rattles of lenkiski shamans and other ethnographic wonders from around the world.
