Vladivostok is the homeland of this oldest marine echinoderm on the planet. It has been living on Earth for more than 500 million years. Trepang is an interesting and unique creature. And where, as not in Vladivostok, to create such a museum. Besides, the Chinese name of our city, Haishenwai, translates as “Trepang Cove”.
The museum offers interesting excursions about the useful properties of “sea cucumber”, about the function of trepang regeneration and about other treasures of Primorye and Russia.
The museum area is 1000 m2.
Vladivostok is a seaside port city: the noise of surf, clear sea, beautiful relief of the coast has always attracted tourists from all over Russia and abroad. The Trepang Museum is located not far from the favorite place of tourists – Tokarevsky lighthouse.
Children have grown very fond of our museum.
We often hold fascinating scientific and cognitive quests.
Our task is to instill in children love and pride for their native land and country.
