Conservation of the objects for the exhibition The signs of the original milestones. Objects from the Numismatics Department of the Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts
The Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts and Khabarovsk Grodekov Museum are proud to present the exhibition The signs of the original milestones. Objects from the Numismatics Department of the Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts
The first joint exhibition project of the two museums will be devoted to the history of the conquest and exploration of the Far East, its settlement and development, as well as the construction of the Trans-Siberian Railroad (the Great Siberian Railway).
The exhibition will feature coronation medals and tokens marking key milestones in the history of the region and the entire country, as well as medals honouring discoverers and explorers. All of the objects selected for the exhibition have been conserved. All the treatments were carried out under a microscope, as corrosion on the metal needed to be carefully identified.
