The Kunstkamera is the first museum in Russia. Established by Peter the Great and completed in 1727, the Kunstkammer Building hosts the Peter the Great Museum of Anthropology and Ethnography with a collection of almost 2,000,000 items. It is located on the Universitetskaya Embankment in Saint Petersburg, facing the Winter Palace. Peter\’s aim in setting up the museum was to demonstrate that the malformations were not the result of the evil eye or sorcery, but rather caused by internal damage as well as fear and the beliefs of the mother during pregnancy.
