Owner description: The State Museum of the History of Religion is one of the world’s few museums and the only one of its kind in Russia. Its permanent exhibition features the origin and development of Religion. The Museum collection numbers about 200 000 exhibits. It houses a wide range of historical and cultural artifacts from various countries, ages, and peoples which date back to the 6th Millennium BC. The Museum established a reputation of one of the most fast-growth museums in Russia for the last 5 years. The Museum opened to the public new permanent exhibition’s departments: ‘Islam’, ‘Sukhavati – the Pure Land of Buddha Amitabha’ (‘The Buddhist Paradise’), ‘Religions of the East: Buddhism, Hinduism, Confucianism, Taoism and Shinto’ and special Children department ‘The Very Beginning’ as well. The museum is delighted to announce that the redisplayed permanent exhibition’s departments, ‘The Archaic and Primitive Beliefs’, ‘Religions of the Ancient World: Polytheism’, ‘Religions of the Ancient World: Judaism and Rise of Monotheism’ and ‘Rise of Christianity’ were opened to public on April 2012. Anybody who is familiar with the experience of the world museum development knows that very few museums go in for the full redisplay and making new exhibition projects, does justice our executive work.
