The Museum of the World Ocean in cooperation with the Moscow Kremlin Museums and with the support of PJSC LUKOIL (for the 45th anniversary of LLC LUKOIL-KMN) has prepared the most expensive exhibition project in the history of Kaliningrad Region - Patrons of Seafarers, Heavenly and Earthly.
Over a hundred original items, related to the history of the Russian Navy and people patronizing it are leaving the Kremlin for the first time and coming to Kaliningrad.
It is the first Moscow Kremlin Museums’ project dedicated to both Supreme and Royal patronage of seafaring and seafarers, comprising the art of the 15 th to the 19 th century.
A variety of pieces from pocket watches, calipers, lorgnettes, inkstands and snuffboxes to cold arms, icons and awards are going to reveal a glorious heroes’ age. Visitors are going to see decorations, tableware, lockets with the monarchs’ portraits inside andtapestry portraits of the emperors Peter the Great and Alexander I.
All these artifacts are not only of historic and cultural significance but they are also fine jeweler’s art, since the most part of them is made of precious metals and inlaid with gems.
The 320th anniversary of the Grand Embassy and Peter the Great’s visit to Koenigsberg gave an idea to focus on the Petrine Epoch – late 17th - early 18th century. So, visitors will admire fascinating and impressive story about navigators and their patrons – those who were invisibly present nearby all the time.
The exhibition is on display from September 7, 2017to January 14, 2018.

The Historical and Cultural Centre “The Grand Embassy” at the Koenig Gate invites to the new exposition. The exhibition about the gate’s history, its reconstruction and restoration, is going to be replaced by “The Pharmacy of the Three Kings”. A small gothic hall will be turned into an alchemists’ and physicians’ world. The brick entourage in the best way possible will project an atmosphere of a medieval chemist’s. Guests will “travel” to the epoch of knighthood and duchy, and then – visit a chemist’s shop of the Prussian Kings. Every step at the exhibition is a fascinating travel to the world of secrets and mysteries. Who knows, maybe here one can reveal a philosophers' stone secret! Here one can see chemist’s cabinets with crude drugs, medicines, mineral water and potions, a counter as well as stuffed exotic animals and herbs. Don’t be surprised to see a Koenigsberg chemist who will offer you a melancholy potion or heal-all herbal tea. Moreover, everyone can buy a brochure guide, a collected chemist’s stories from the ancient time till the present days.

Opened at the art gallery of the Maritime Exhibition Centre in Svetlogorsk, the graphics and art exhibition My Odyssey by E. Datsko, Honoured Artist of the RF, comprises over 50 works, created in his art expeditions in 1970—2015. One of his most epochal activities of this period was his expedition to the USA from Vladivostok onboard three packet boats in 1991-1994. His interest in “Russian America” became the dominating art idea. Datsko visited all the major Russian Orthodox churches in the USA as well as the settlements of Russian Old Believers in Alaska. He came to know their everyday life and culture with sincere interest, and a lot of the things he had seen became a part of his works. Another important topic – Russian immigration to the USA after 1917.
