Amur Museum

The Amur Museum is an exposition about the flora and fauna of the Amur River, the main river artery in Khabarovsk Krai.

The Amur Museum's visiting card is the dinosaur and mammoth models made on the basis of the original bone remains of these animals. And if the remains of mammoths are found on the territory of Russia in many regions, the unique place of accumulation of dinosaur remains on the territory of Amur region is the only one in Russia.

The first hall is devoted to paleontology and demonstrates the distant past of the territory where the Amur River basin is located nowadays. The colorful panel made in enamel technique allows to learn about the main stages of life development on the Earth, and dioramas illustrate the life of prehistoric animals in their habitats.

The geological section of the museum is of particular interest. It reflects not only richness and diversity of minerals of the Amur River basin, but also demonstrates samples collected in different parts of the world. Another interesting exhibit is the Moon soil, delivered to the Earth in 1970s by "Luna" spacecraft and fragments of meteorites: Khabarovsk and Sikhote-Alin. The stone products made by the famous Khabarovsk artists - G.D. Pavlishin, A.Yu. Tsepkalenko and others.

The exposition shows the landscapes of the Amur region. The central place is occupied by the diorama "Amur Dali", the main character of which is the Amur tiger.

The aquariums contain some species of Amur fish. Here live Amur sturgeons, coho, carp, bighead carp, white amur and other fish. There is also an interesting "dry aquarium" with stuffed snakehead, aukha, pufferfish, redfin and many others. The most striking exhibit is a moulage of the largest freshwater fish in Asia - the crayfish.
