#ARCTIC. #SIBERIA. THIS IS TAIMYR. The Taimyr Museum of Local Lore’s employees visited the children’s tourism and excursions station in Norilsk with an outing program. Classes with pupils were held as part of the Taimyr Art Seasons project, supported by the Nornickel’ World of New Opportunities charity program grant.

For the children of the station, Dudinka museum workers held several classes. Senior researcher Lidia Aksenova told the children about the northern nomads’ culture and life, gave a tour of the traveling photo exhibition A Deer Running Through the Streets, dedicated to the traditional culture of Taimyr indigenous peoples.

A master class on making a national Nenets doll was arranged for young tourists. Researcher Elena Evay taught schoolchildren how to make and decorate a traditional toy, spoke about the role of games in educating nomadic children.

The older guys visited the exhibition Taimyr during the Great Patriotic War, learned about the defense of Dikson, the fate of front-line soldiers, and other facts of the peninsula history. For the middle and junior level, the organizers held Games in the Taimyr Camp.

Recently, the funds of the local history museum have been replenished with paintings by Sviridov and a Soviet video camera. Among the museum rarities there is a collection of rare books, a shaman’s tambourine and a unique exhibit – the skeleton of the famous mammoth Zhenya.

Earlier, amber 160 million years old was found in Taimyr.
