Thousands years of Belarusian history are condensed into just ten information stands. The National History Museum’s high-tech exhibition, entitled Belarus and Belarusians, is worth a visit as it’s the first mobile show describing Belarus’ cultural and historical achievements in such detail.

The exhibition is truly unique. The project can be assembled and dismantled easily and is convenient for transportation, occupying little space. Multi-media technology integrated into the stands can translate the information into any language. It’s no surprise that, when exhibited at the Foreign Ministry, the show caused considerable interest among the diplomatic corps in Belarus.
The Deputy Foreign Minister, Yelena Kupchina, spoke about the success of the project, “Our exhibition aims to present Belarus’ history and culture abroad. We would like all nations to learn that Belarus is a sovereign state which has its own glorious and dramatic historical periods. In 2016 — announced as the Year of Culture, we plan to continue strengthening Belarus’ independence, state and identity — including in the international arena. Our mobile exhibition project is one contribution to this.”
The project is based on fact, confirmed by the Director of the Belarusian National Academy of Sciences’ History Institute, Vyacheslav Danilovich. “It combines scientific materials which objectively reflect our past. This enables foreign citizens to form a comprehensive view of our country,” he says.
In turn, the Director of the National History Museum, Oleg Ryzhkov, noted that the exhibition schedule is already planned for the whole of 2016. The project is to be taken to Europe, Asia, Japan and our neighbouring states. In addition, it will be open not only to embassy staff and visitors but also to guests of international business and cultural events.
