Mammoth-Skull-Shaped Museum to Appear in Irkutsk

A congress center and a museum of modern art will be built in the shape of a mammoth skull in Irkutsk, on the Chertugeevsky Peninsula. However, the coast protection needs to be taken care of there first.

      Provided all necessary works are completed, the peninsula will get a congress center for organization of large forums. A ModernArtMuseum under the name Mammoth is planned to be constructed there with a set of showrooms and repositories. The ground floor will be dedicated to archeology, the first floor will house an exposition of the Irkutsk regional branch of the Russian Geographical Society, and the Museum of Modern Art of three subjects of the Russian Federation – the Irkutsk Region, Buryatia Republic and Sakha Republic (Yakutia) will occupy the three upper floors. Various biennials will be held in the same place. A landscape park has also been planned to be created on the peninsula…

      The idea of constructing the museum building in the shape of a huge mammoth skull was suggested by the well-known Buryat sculptor Dashi Namdakov. The cost of the project implementation has been estimated at 1.5 billion rubles.
