Azov Regional Museum

The Azov Regional Museum was opened in 1917. Nowadays the extensive museum collection has a pronounced individuality. Archaeological collections comprise its significant part. They allow to present cultures of numerous peoples who dwelt on the Azov Sea coastlands in different historical periods. This is proved by the finds including jewelry collections, horse harness articles of the antiquity, arms objects of bronze epoch to the Middle Ages. Sarmatian articles and a vast collection of glazed and kashin pottery of the XIV century is a real pearl of the archaeological collection. Glazed pottery with multi-colored inlaid ornament embellish the Museum glass-cases and are the evidences of the Golden Horde trading connections.

The significant paleontological collection, the largest one in the south of Russia, attracts attention of experts and those who is fond of antiquity. A unique part of the paleontological collection comprises: a Deinotherium skeleton and two skeletons of mammoth trogonthenum (male and female). The skeleton of mammoth tro-gontherium is one of the biggest mounted skeletons in the world. Scientific expeditions permanently work in Azov and its neighborhood, thus increasing the Museum collection with new archaeological and natural-science materials.
