Press Office of the Amber Museum

The land of the rising sun wasn't chosen accidentally – the year 2018 was announced The Year of Japan in Russia.

Traditionally, all museum stages will be used during the action. For those, who will decide to come earlier, even before the programme, there will be a master class from the "Aikido Yoshinkan Federation" in front of the gates. The main action starts at 20.00 in the outer yard of the Amber Museum. Guests will see a theatrical play in buto style – avant-garde dancing style – by the theater "Del", cosplay show by the Panicon festival, kendo exhibition performance and listen to Japanese songs by a singer Tsubasa.

In the museum's inner yard, where guests usually rest enjoying coolness and the museum fountain view, a cooking class will take place. Restauranteurs together with guests will cook one of the most popular dishes in Japan – Ramen.

In the exposition during the night of museums, there will be an exhibition of fossil resins from the whole world "Stone Garden"and amber items by Beoluna – Tokio Company.

Visitors of the basement floor will be able to partake in various workshops – in origami, Japanese calligraphy, Go game, and manga drawing. Tea ceremony and contemplation of amber in items by DARVIN Jewellery Studio will help to rest between activities.

The programme will be concluded with a fire show, which is much liked by participants of the Night of Museums. This time it will be held in Japanese style.

We are inviting everyone to spend an unforgettable night on 18 May in the Amber Museum.

Price of the entire ticket for the Night of Museums 2018 – 500 rubles. For those who will decide to visit only the Amber Museum, the ticket will cost 250 rubles.

The Amber Museum is also an organizer of a special project which had great success in 2017.  A quest with QR codes – the Intermuseum Race – is addressed to biking enthusiasts. Tasks hidden by the museums and sightseeings of the city will appear in the real-time mode.
