Russia day five – St Petersburg museums

Yesterday was our final day in St Petersburg. We visited four relatively traditional museums.

First on the list was the State Museum of the History of Religion. They chart the history of religion through the ages. We had a tour from their director who was passionate about what they do.

Next on on the list was The Zoological Museum, it has incredible collections but felt like stepping back in time. It was particularly great to see the baby mammoth Masha which we tried to borrow for our Siberia exhibition.

And finally the Memorial Museum Raznocchinny Petersburg which charts the changing landscape of the city.

Today is our last day in Russia and we’d like to thank everyone we have met. The staff at the British Council have been incredibly helpful and special thanks go to Olga Sinitsyna who put much of the programme together.
