On a festive day, June 12, the Sakhalin Regional Museum opened its doors, free to all comers. The Museum has always participated in the celebration of the Day of Russia, but for the fifth consecutive year, on this day the Museum invites everyone to attend events free of charge and prepares the bright festive program, every time surprising visitors with something new and unusual. Regional and city creative teams, artists and soloists also provide support to the Museum.
That day about 600 people attended the Museum festive event despite the unfavorable weather.
The Museum Information Board provided information about the history of the holiday, the national composition of the peoples of Russia, the state symbols of the Russian Federation (coat of arms, flag, hymn). Using an unconventional technique, the youngest visitors made drawings on paper with the help of a palm print or with crayons on the asphalt, played in the once popular, but, unfortunately, disappeared outdoor games «Chinese Jump Rope», «Dodgeball», «Hopscotch», «Jumping rope». The festive events included excursions of the Museum garden, guided tours about the nature and history of the islands of the Sakhalin region.
Many visitors have taken photos with a kind Museum Misha (bear) a symbol of the city of Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk, which warmed up the audience with bright dances and active games. Our Mishka also found a common language with children: had fun, enjoying and communicating.
Adults and children could enjoy Ernest Zhumabekov’s and Anna Lipchenkos concert «Songs for the Soul», try on and take a picture in a Russian sarafan (sundress) and Nivkh dressing gown.
During the day, the participants of the contest «#Russia_Museum_Me» took pictures at the museum. The winner will be selected on June 14 at 11:00 a.m. with the help of a random number generator and will have a unique opportunity to visit the roof of the Museum and take interesting photos.
