Natural and Ecological Museum in Polotsk
Belarus, Polock

The Natural Ecological Museum opened on September 3, 2005.
The exposition of the museum is located in the building of the former water tower, built in 1953. The height of the building is 32.7 meters, the diameter is 8 meters. The exhibition area is 300 m2, more than a thousand items of the natural-historical collection are exhibited. The epigraph to the museum’s exposition was the words of Yuri Bondarev: “Ecological consciousness is a ladder connecting Earth, Sky and Man into a single union.” The four exhibition levels of the museum are "strung" on a staircase symbolizing the Tree of Life. The idea of a world tree is one of the oldest in the world. According to Slavic mythology, the Tree of Life stands on the outskirts of the Universe (at the Lukomorye), its peak rests in the sky, and its roots reach the world bottom. The gods descend and ascend this tree and it is possible to penetrate into other worlds through it. This idea expressed the connection of man and the universe, the meaning of his earthly and divine nature. Traveling along the spiral staircase of the Natural Ecological Museum allows you to look into the various "worlds" of nature and ecology, and rise to the top of ecological consciousness.
The first level - “Belarus is our home” tells about the biological diversity and uniqueness of the nature of Belarus. The second level - “Dowry of Civilization” introduces the environmental problems of the modern city. The third level - “Protected Areas” tells about nature reserves and natural monuments, species listed in the Red Book. At the fourth level there is a cinema-lecture and exhibition hall, as well as a viewing platform with a magnificent view of the city. The territory of the Natural Ecological Museum is a small landscape garden with a large number of various ornamental plants and a pond in which fish live. From early spring to late autumn, the garden is decorated with flowers and plant leaves, fanciful in shape and color. Leaning over the pond, with curiosity examines the crane fish, which was created from the dry grass by gardener Urban Svetlana. The visitor begins to think about the problems of the relationship between man and nature before examining the exposition at the sculpture by V. Slobodchikov “Fish in the sun. Ecological motive ”, awarded a diploma at the I international sculpture exhibition in China. A lot of philosophical meaning is embodied in it - each person sees in it something of his own, special.
