We heartily welcome you to our website! I am sure that you will want to visit the Museum, view expositions and exhibitions and walk through the Museum square taking not only virtual but also real tours.
The history of our beautiful island disclosed through the richest Museum collections will appear before you in all its glory. An easily recognizable and unique building of the Sakhalin Regional Museum will add extra charm to all expositions and exhibitions.
2016 is important and significant for all Sakhalin museums. 120 years ago, in December 1896, the first museum was opened in the outskirts of the Russian Empire using joint efforts of convict c administration, political exiles and just concerned people.
Such names as Pilsudski, Sternberg, Pogaevsky, Poddubsky, Lobas, Ellinsky and many others, all those who participated in the creation of the Museum, are kept in our memory, in our collections and our events.
The long and complicated, almost a detective story of formation and development, sometimes decline and revival of the Museum has borne fruit.
Today a team of like-minded people working in the Museum uses their wealth of experience, excellent knowledge and great intelligence to identify, preserve, display and introduce into the scientific circulation unique objects, photographs of documents illustrating the challenging but interesting history of Sakhalin Island.
There is a wide variety of activities and events in the Museum Programs: guided tours, exhibitions, conferences, special programs for children and youth, performances, festive and jubilee events, the unique scientific publications and many other things.
The main thing is that the Museum has a clear Perspective Development Program and implements it enthusiastically and looks into the future with new hopes and plans.
And this is all for you, dear friends. We need each other. We invite you to come to the Museum; we are always glad and happy to see you!
On behalf of Sakhalin Regional Museum employees:
Temur G. Miromanov, Director, Honored Worker of Culture of the Sakhalin Region
