InterActive History project at Art Night 2019

In November 2019 two events were organized by the National museum of the Republic of Karelia in the framework of the Art Night to present the InterActive History international project.

The Art Night guests were welcomed for a unique tour on the history of Petrozavodsk based on the layout model of the Round Square of the late 18th century. It’s a new exhibit which was created through the InterActive History project. The tour was held by the volunteers of the National museum of the Republic of Karelia for 150 visitors. Volunteers including students of the Petrozavodsk State University and the Petrozavodsk branch of the Emperor Alexander I St. Petersburg State Transport University were specially prepared for this tour by the museum staff and director Mikhail Goldenberg.

      

Another event was an express quiz on the history of Petrozavodsk. To get the right answers to 6 questions and win a prize one had to find special hints hidden in different parts of the museum in exhibitions – on photographs, exhibits, the layout model of the Round Square.
