Gerd National Museum of the Udmurt Republic (Izhevsk)

287 Kommunarov Street, Izhevsk, tel.: +7 83412 52-51-77, +7 83412 52-64-77.

The Gerd National Museum of the Udmurt Republic (the Museum, for short) is a scientific, research, cultural, educational, and methodological center of the Udmurt Republic as well as the largest storage of monuments of material and spiritual culture of all peoples inhabiting the region.

The Museum was opened in 1920. In 1926, Kuzebay Gerd, the ethnographer, poet, and true enlightener of his region, became a director of the Museum later named after him.

The Museum is situated in a building of a former armory of the Izhevsk Weapons Factory, the monument of industrial architecture of the first quarter of the 19th century designed by S. Dudin in high classicism style.

The Museum exposition is a system of exhibitions showing the nature and the history of the region that is an ancestral home for Finno-Ugric peoples. The ethnic history of the Udmurts, Russians, Maries, and Tatars living in the Republic is represented by abundant collections and museum complexes of national clothing, homeware and other things telling us about life, traditions, customs, and religion of the nations. The Udmurts is one of a few nations that preserve paganism. Udmurtia, and particularly Izhevsk, is known as a forge of military, hunting, and sporting weapons. The expositions devoted to the history of Izhevsk weapons and military history of the region are always of much interest to Russian and foreign tourists of all ages.

Today, a permanent historical exposition "The History and Culture of the Region from the 8th century AC to the 20th century BC" is opened in the main museum of the Republic. The large exhibition, taking four rooms, is a result of 15 year long great and painstaking work by the museum staff. The very interesting exhibits from the richest collection of archaeology and ethnography are represented here. Scientists and ethnographers have commented on the exhibition in a good light only. Visitors of the exhibition note that it is very informative and visually presents the history and culture of the Udmurt nation. The Museum's staff, creators of the exhibition, got the State Award of the Udmurt Republic.
