Lonely Planet review for Regional Museum
Irkutsk’s pleasant, if fairly standard, Regional Museum is within a fancy 1870s brick building that formerly housed the Siberian Geographical Society, a club of Victorian-style gentlemen-explorers. The small gift shop is good for birch-bark boxes and jewellery made from purple chaorite, a unique Siberian mineral.
