Potanin Local History Museum

The Pavlodar Regional Museum of Local History, established in 1942, is a treasured institution with a rich history. In 1959, it was dedicated to the memory of G. N. Potanin, a renowned explorer and traveler of Central Asia.

The museum owes its inception to the vision of Dmitry Polikarpovich Bagaev, a photographer and local historian. Its exhibition spans across 10 halls, each dedicated to unraveling the history and culture of the region.

As a repository of knowledge and heritage, the museum offers visitors a profound journey into the past, shedding light on the unique history and cultural tapestry of the region.
