About museum

The idea came up twenty years ago, as I wanted to show the common man the ancient history of the country, the region, and the prewriting period of the homeland. This was almost never in the textbooks, but there were a lot of lies and speculations instead. The exposition and tours are only based on the materials reflected in scientific publications or excavation reports.

There are full-scale reconstructions of dwellings from the Stone and Bronze Age, a pavilion of a burial rite, and crafts workshops in the archeological park. We conduct educational tours, open-air lessons, crafts workshops, festivals, thematic holidays, seminars and practical trainings on experimental archeology, and traveling interactive exhibitions. More than 500 replicas of tools, weapons, dishes, gadgets, and mechanisms from the Stone Age and Bronze Age are presented.
