State historical-architectural, landscape and natural museum-preserve «Izborsk»

7 June 2013

State museum-preserve “Izborsk” has taken part in the International festival of museums “Intermuseum -2013”, which was taking place in the Central House of Artists in Moscow from May 31 to June 4. This is the main event in the life of the professional museum community of Russia and CIS countries, organized by the Ministry of Culture of the Russian Federation.


«Intermuseum» - is a unique platform for experience and ideas exchange, where the best practices and achievements in all directions of museum activities are represented, important for both professionals and the general public.

The central theme of the festival in 2013 is “The Museum as an educational resource of the society”. In its exhibition stand the museum-preserve has represented the project of organizing a language ethno-cultural camp for Seto children, which has been successfully working on the basis of Seto people museum estate in the village of Sigovo for the last 3 years.   

Within the framework of the festival museums conducted different master-classes and degustations and also placed in their exhibition stands interactive elements, which enabled the visitors and the participants of the festival to expose themselves to museum life and to learn a lot of fascinating information.   Thus, for example, «The museum of Kolomna’s marshmallow sticks” has presented the “delicious map of Russia”, which illustrated some dishes, traditionally associated with  this or that region, such as Pskov smelt, St. Petersburg smelt, Don’s vimbas, Kamishino watermelons and other. Anyone could designate in this map his or her favorite  traditional dish and thus Izborsk soup and Seto cheese appeared in the “delicious map of Russia”. 

The stand of the museum-preserve was every day visited by many people; many of them congratulated the museum on the recently celebrated jubilee and expressed their delight with the changes, which have taken place in Izborsk in recent years.

Within the framework of the festival in the museum’s stand the traditional craft of Seto people  - plaiting of belts - was demonstrated. Also the degustation of the national Seto dish – flavorful Seto cheese - was carried out.
