There is a strange place in the center of St. Petersburg: here the Eiffel Tower is the size of a grain of rice, and the beetle is larger than a human palm. Here stones become pets and animals produce coffee. It is located in an old mansion – the Quarenghi Palace, and is called the Museum of Records and Facts TITIKACA.
Leave your old ideas of the world in your wardrobe and get ready to meet a giant, find yourself in the heart of a blue whale and see a whole caravan of camels in the eye of a needle. There are over 70 outlandish items in total, most of which have made it into the Guinness Book of Records.
The exposition is divided into several thematic zones: “Made in Russia”, “Dark Spots of History”, “Natural Wonders”, “People Who Surprised Us”, “Strange Traditions” and “Cult Things of the 20th Century”.
History of Museum of Records and Facts TITIKAKA
The creators collected the originals for this collection for several years: they traveled around the world, corresponded with collectors and took part in auctions. By the way, the largest nut in the world has covered as much as 7791 kilometers so that you can see it in St. Petersburg.
Nikita Istomin, creator of the project:
“The goal was not only to find amazing or unknown facts about people, things and nature, but also to present them materially. So that each exhibit can be smelled, tried on, touched ”
What is important is that the museum is interactive. Viewers are encouraged to actively interact with the exhibits: try on medieval masks of shame and giant boots, play a handpan, test a friend on a medieval lie detector.
And also in the TITIKAKA Museum you can:
- cool to pump erudition;
