The structure of the museum: department of the pre-revolutionary history, department of the 20th c. history, department of nature, department of ethnography. The permanent exhibition starts with an introduction hall dedicated to the Mordovian wedding. This is an attempt to translate the book The Mordovian Wedding by the well-known enlightener, ethnographer and linguist M. E. Evseviev into the language of museum. The first hall of the pre-revolutionary department is dedicated to the early period of the Mordovian history. This exhibition starts with the archeology section where artifacts dating back to the Stone, Bronze and Iron Ages are displayed. The adjoining halls tell story about participation of Mordvins in the peasant wars, Patriotic War of 1812, there are objects, books, pre-revolutionary furniture, materials about our famous fellow-countrymen: F.
