Scouting for museum members in Russia

EXARC is constantly on the lookout for new museums which would fit well with the existing 150+ members. With help from ICOM Russia we selected over 25 open-air museums in the vast Russian territory of which we think they have reconstructed houses as well. We decided to write them a letter, but we should of course address them in Russian! The strength of EXARC as a ‘cloud’ of people with expertise showed when one of our Italian members, Historia Vivens, volunteered to make a translation in perfect Russian.

The archaeological open-air museums we know of are listed at We are very interested to add more. If you know of any unlisted colleagues, please contact us.
