First we had a performance from the Karelian State troop which was lovely, then we went round the museum to see more of their icons etc and finally to the workshop to print your own bag with a bird of paradise on it.
Fantastic museum. The vast majority of information was also available in English. Unique exhibitions on different parts of Karelian history and culture. Beautiful traditional embroidery. A must-see for anyone visiting Karelia

Numerous rooms with lots of exponates from different ages of the region's history with informative cards both in Russian and English!
