Widely known for being the first museum in Russia, the Kunstkamera is an important landmark in the city of Saint Petersburg. Established in 1727, this building is an example of the Petrine Baroque style of architecture.

Designed by Georg Johann Mattarnovy, this museum originally contained what Peter considered were rarities and oddities in nature and humanity. Among the vast and somewhat eclectic collection that is housed in the museum, the large collection of abnormal human and animal fetuses is what people consider to be most fascinating and striking at the same time.

  • It was great, worth visiting.. They got a really great collection with bottled babies that might give quite a beautiful headache. The ethnic collections from across the world is specially interesting, though remember that you need atleast three hours to discover the little beautiful pieces. Five stars, wont regret visiting it again...

  • I've been there several years ago. I don't remember clearly about rest of exhibition. But the museum is good for researchers and anatomy-lovers. I don't understand people who cries or terrifies after they looked at embryos with anomalies. Hey, it's anthropological museum. What eyes you had when read a nameplate on entrance?

  • Not as grand as some of the other museums you will come across in Moscow and St Peters, but the place still has enough interesting stuff to make it a worthwhile visit. Most of the buzz around this place seems to be related to the deformed human section, which actually is a small part of the museum to be honest. Liked the place overall, although it was smaller than what I expected!

  • Many interesting exhibits, by looking at the pictures am not sure if we have seen a of them. If you are faint hearted you might need to reconsider visiting the deformed human section. I believe it can shock some people (especially young children). The museum has its own app which unfortunately did not work on my phone.

  • Very interesting place, can see the life of people from all over the world in very realistic way. The science part is a bit unpleasant but knowledgeable at the same time. Highly recommend!
