    I must say: I felt otherwise and this museum bypass side. But there were no options 2.01:) Oh how I was wrong! Just say: I am indifferent to the icons and ethnography, BUT even I liked very much! Firstly, the ethnographic exhibition is equipped with good explanations. With them, coins and other crocks archaeology find a compelling story. In Novgorod 13 century the population was quite literate, street was paved with whale, trade is organized not worse than today's, and other miscellaneous stuff. Incidentally, birchbark look quite different, as you'd expect:) Secondly, the exhibition of icons is framed not worse. As a result, you can trace the development of religious painting in the region. Suddenly, it turned out to be a very interesting topic. Particularly impressive are the differences in the tradition of rural craftsmen and public workshops. Thirdly, the exhibition dedicated to the great patriotic war is made with great skill. Showing different facets of fascism (ashtray from the gold domes, destroyed ancient buildings and, at the same time, metodichka about the history of Veliky Novgorod in German) and the Soviet people (memories of obnoxious evacuate and beautiful 288 leadership Division). The devil is in the details, they produce a very strong impression. In the fourth, in the Museum of mass interactive booths. Especially chic voice begestjanyh. Clearest evidence that people at all times are the same:) Tip: pay attention to the Museum shop. They have a chic selection of quality souvenirs to suit all tastes. Moreover, for alleged money. A rare case when a bunch of clearly see not only myself, but also familiar.
