Central and North Asia is an immense region occupying the northeast of the Eurasian continent. It has long been a crossroads for interactions linking east and west, north and south, where many diverse peoples have mingled. After undergoing socialist rule during the twentieth century, the region is now shifting to market economies. Caught up in the wave of globalization, traditions are being reevaluated. This exhibit has three sections on "Central Asia", "Mongolia", "Siberia and the Arctic", along with two sections accentuating the key themes of "Living with Nature" and "The Socialist Era."
