Kunstkamera - Review
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.
- Keep some time in handy as you will surely get lost in the vastness of the museum.

Kunstkamera, Saint Petersburg Reviews
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!
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!
Beautiful Museum Super complete and full of interesting stuff. The mobile app is superb. Could be improved cause some audios are mismatched (China audio is repeated in another room). Obvs the highlights are the monsters in the second floor. Super interesting
I've been to these types of museums in London & New York. But this one was a blast. The anthropoligy sections of indigenious folks was wonderful. Especially those eskimos. The "freaky" stuff was interesting, but totally weird. Like a scene out of "Alien". But you know what the kids showed real interest
Very interesting to see how ones of the earliest museum's in Europe curated. Love the life like statues
