Photographer's Note

The Kunstkammer, Peter the Great's gallery of curiosities, is an interesting example of early Russian Baroque. Built between 1718 and 1734 and became the first Natural Science Museum in Russia, and it included a library and an observatory. In 1878 it became the Museum of Anthropology and Ethnology. The museum's displays include items which illustrate the daily lives and cultures of many different countries.
