    Of course! I expected something like this. This is a typical Russian chauvinistic museum where first you see mammoth’s tusk, and then first Russian settlers’ stuff. What happened between them – during several thousand years? What events happened, what states existed, what rulers, what people lived here before Russians colonizers arrived? No information of such kind you can find in such so-called “museums”.

    BTW, I was first.

    That’s an odd conclusion to reach at the end of a 39 picture photo essay.
