The State Museum of the History of Religion is one of the world’s few museums and the only one of its kind in Russia. It’s a must-see place for everyone interested in the origin and development of Religion. The museum houses a wide range of historical and cultural artifacts from various countries, ages, and peoples: from the Archaic (c. 6000 BC) and Ancient Egypt and Israel Times to the early Middle Ages in Europe; from the Ancient Greece and Rome to the present day. The history of Buddhism and Islam is also featured on the display.
