The Ethnography Museum located in the very center of St. Petersburg is one of the largest ethnographic museums in the world. The collection of this museum contains around half a million exhibits dedicated to the culture of 158 nationalities inhabiting the former Soviet Union.
The Jewish exposition of the Ethnography museum introduces its visitors to the Jewish (Ashkenazi) collection which illustrates the Eastern European Jewish culture.
Splendid examples of religious artifacts, items used during religious ceremonies or for protecting the scrolls of the Torah demonstrate many facets of the Jewish artistic traditions and throw light on the everyday life of the Jewish people.
