Miklouho-Maclay. XXI Century. Revived History


Inaugural ceremony of the unique exhibition “Miklouho-Maclay. XXI Century. Revived History” will take place in the “Universe of Water” Multimedia Complex on November 23.  The exhibition is arranged by the Miklouho-Maclay Foundation with the support of the Presidential Grants Foundation.

The exhibition will feature copies of the 19th century drawings by N.N. Miklukho-Maklay, as well as unique materials of the research expedition of 2017 - photographs taken during the expedition, video stories taken on the Maclay Coast in the villages dwelt by descendants of the local inhabitants, the Papuans, that for the first time met the Russian scientist in the XIX century.

Visitors to the exhibition will have a unique opportunity to trace the development of human civilization from the period when the inhabitants of the island did not know what iron was and lived in a kind of “stone age”.
