Words from the Director

Dear friends, I am glad to welcome you to the website of our Museum!

Our Museum is a central landmark of the Sakhalin region.

During more than 120 years of the Museum’s history there have been collected and created unique collections and interesting expositions. The Regional Museum is the custodian of the history and culture of the society, the custodian of the primary sources of the natural history of Sakhalin and the Kuril Islands. The museum’s collections include more than 200 thousand items of nature, archeology, history and cultural heritage of the peoples who lived and are living now in the Sakhalin region.

The museum is a place where history comes to life!

You can see unique objects, and through them come into contact with the fate of an individual or an entire people who lived in another time, discover interesting facts about the place where you live through the expositions of flora and fauna, look deep into the depths of millennium through archaeological and geological collections.

On our site you can make a virtual tour of the museum, look into the exhibition halls, and also get information about unique exhibits, about scientific projects and publications, exhibitions and excursions, events and programs prepared by the museum staff and many other interesting information.

Every year about 100 thousand residents and guests of the Sakhalin region visit our Museum.

We will be glad to see you not only on the website, but also in the walls of our Museum!

Until the next time!

Best wishes

Yuri Yurievich Alin, Director of the Sakhalin Regional Museum
