  • A lot of visitors. The cost of an adult ticket is 300 rubles. The staff is organized well. The Museum of anthropology and ethnography exhibits. Not sure what a visit to Kunstcamera should be mandatory during a trip to St. Petersburg, but if you have free time, you may want to consider another option.

  • The Museum is very interesting and instructive. Exhibited and suits of Nations of the world, shows the life of our ancestors. Visited the Museum twice, never felt sorry about his visit.
