Altai Arts, Literature & Culture Museum

Top choice in Altai

The impressively eclectic – not to mention good-value – Altai Arts, Literature & Culture Museum occupies a restored, furnished 1850s mansion. There are some fine icons, Rerikh sketches and a collection of Iron Age relics including the re-created tomb of a horseman complete with his trusty (though, at the moment of its sacrifice, probably rather annoyed) steed.
