It is a small but very interesting museum. Especially if you get the grand tour. Luckily I had somebody along that was able to explain most of the objects and interesting items on display in English as well as tell about many of the Khanti-habits. There is no English translation anywhere in the museum. The most interesting part I found the Khanti-expositions and the traditional interior of an izba. The stuffed and even more the alive animals i could have done without. But I immensely enjoyed the short but extremely attractive display of paintings. So if you ever find yourself in the neighbourhood, do not forget to make a visit here

The museum in Megion can arrange this for you. This time there are no explainantions since usually there is a guide coming along. She, unfortunately, doesn't speak english but i was lucky and had my own personal guide (one of the sons of the family with whom i was staying worked in the museum and he speaks english). It is very interesting to have a look around. Even though there never lived Khanti here, they have build most of the buildings and many of the objects found here are from Khanti origin. It was a very rainy day and i wish i could have made pics on a beautiful sunny day. On the other hand, it did not deter from the sightseeing really (except that my glasses tended to fog up).
