St. Petersburg's oldest museum is also its strangest. Kunstkamera (which translates as "art house") was founded by Peter the Great in 1714. It is also known as the Peter the Great Museum of Anthropology and Ethnography. It has anthropological and ethnographic collections on the cultures of people around the world as well as an eclectic mix of random items that Peter and Russian explorers collected on their worldly travels. Peter's Anatomical Collection, with its severed hands and malformed babies in jars, still draws crowds.
