Presentations of regional museums of Karelia were presented.
During the break, we managed to communicate and discuss the possibilities of cooperation of the Department of Tourism with the museums of Olonets, Sheltozer, Kondopoga. The head of the branch “National Museum of the Republic of Kazakhstan” in Belomorsk invited the students to come on an excursion to a unique museum in the republic.
PetrSU students are invited to practice and later to work in museums of Karelia, as PetrSU actively participates in volunteer work and creative projects (for example, with the Museum of Fine Arts and the visit center of the Vodlozersky National Park).
The program of events was full of useful information, meetings and a desire to further improve the professional level in the field of museum affairs and actively cooperate not only with the museums of the city of Petrozavodsk, but also with remote museums,noted the participants of the event.
