  • I was pleasantly surprised. Was not this the Museum probably 25 years, and compared to what it was-pretty good places appeared new exhibitions, somewhere there was a place interaktivu, 6-year-old child was also interesting. Of the changed for the worse, if I may say so-this building. The inside clearly need repair, such things don't pay attention, and over the years, somehow all this conspicuous.

  • The exposition allows to get acquainted with the nature and history of the Sakhalin area. Perhaps the main attraction of the Museum for the first time at the Sakhalin has entered human.

  • Each year, together with the South Korean scientists I will definitely visit Sakhalin State regional Museum of kraevelcheskij. And every visit like a journey to a time machine. Moving from room to room, I translate to Korean caption and picture I watch as my guests developed curiosity and interest in the history of the island and its inhabitants. Unfortunately removed exhibits, learn about the history of the Sakhalin Koreans.
