On my arrival in Kharkov I stayed with my readers. Andrei and Yana, the leading blog Encyclopedia of wandering. Andrew is working Researcher at the Museum of Nature of Kharkov National University. V.N. Karazin. The term is long, so I’m for Convenience and brevity, I will call it the Museum of Nature of Kharkov. So, Andrew spent for me a separate tour of his place work. So I was lucky, and in a free rhythm I could walk along halls of the museum, take pictures, get answers to their stupid questions to go “behind the scenes” of the museum. For ordinary visitors visiting is possible only as part of excursion groups.

Kharkov Nature Museum

Kharkiv Museum of Nature recently celebrated its 200-year-old anniversary. It was formed from the collections of zoological and mineralogical classrooms of Kharkiv National University them. V.N. Karazin to this day is not a separate legal person, and one of the university departments. The very first exhibits were delivered from Hannover in 1807, after which The study of natural science was formed. Subsequently his foundation repeatedly replenished, and the office turned into two separate Museum – zoological and mineralogical. Only in the 60s of the twentieth centuries both offices finally united in the Museum of Nature, being in his separate building, a former student dormitory on Trinkler Street.

The Museum of Nature is one of the largest museums in Europe, its The collection has more than 250 thousand exhibits, among which stuffed animals from around the world, a rich collection of insects, mountain rocks and minerals. As I learned, missing parts of skeletons are often are made of plaster, and some colorful carcasses are tinted with paint – nothing lasts forever. Frame stuffed do on two technologies – from wire and wool or paper mache. Last – more modern and durable.

A little sorry for the little animals, but in the fields of all kinds they die much more. And in the museum at least you can promote the love of animals.

A little backstage

Fans of their work really work in the Museum of Nature. Otherwise How can I work for a salary of 6000r, I can’t put my mind to it. Surely you have to earn money or somehow get out. But if If the museum was located a little to the west, in neighboring countries, one could devote oneself entirely to scientific activity. It’s amazing how many strong-willed people in our countries are which hold museums and other similar organizations.

It also becomes a little sad that the museum staff has to dodge and improve the museum’s exposition with minimal means sometimes out of pocket. In particular, tape recorders with in some exposures, the sound recording of birds was replaced by local ones. craftsmen on mp3 players. Immediately recall the technical equipment in as virtual media players on the Menara Tower Malaysia.
