billboard, events and excursions

    The Museum was opened in 1904 at the Free Economic Society (a non-governmental body). Collections of soils formed byt V.V.Dokuchaev during his numerous expeditions were to be the basis for the establishment of the Museum. Those collections turned to be the first soils collections in the world. At present the Museum has a collection of 2500 soil monolites which represent the global variety of the types of virgin cultivated soils of all the natural zones. The main idea of Museum exhibition is to show not only soil diversity but also pedogenetic processes, interrelations of soils with other elements of ecosystems
