“Intermuseum-2016” has Finished Its Work

17.05.2016

In Moscow, the International Museum Festival “Intermuseum-2016” has finished its work on May 16. It was actively participated by the National M.A.Sholokhov Museum-Reserve. Within the four working days the sections of the 300 home and foreign museums were visited by 35 thousand people, that is twice as much as it was last year.

On the first day the section of the Museum-Reserve of M.A.Sholokhov was visited by V.Medinsky, Minister of Culture of the Russian Federation. He got acquainted with the work of the master-classes “Preparations of a Cossack for the Military Service” and “A Day at a Cossack Gymnasium”, and with the publishing products of the Museum.

On that day, on the main stage of the festival there was shown a documentary « “The Quiet Don”. Filming Against the Background of the Epoch» (the film director E.Yakovich), and a creative meeting with S.Ursulyak, the film director of “The Quiet Don”, and A.Sholokhov, Director of the Museum-Reserve of M.A.Sholokhov.

All the days of the festival, the section of Sholokhov Museum was visited by lots of guests. The master-classes were held every hour: the children and adults enthusiastically learned the techniques which Cossacks used in fighting, they watched fancy riding and wielding a sword and learned to write with an old pen according to the old samples of writing.

The Museum workers took part in the seminars and “round table” talks, exchanged their experience with their colleagues and presented new projects to be realized within the frames of the creative Museum concept “Open Air Novel”.
