Museum of the great scientist and explorer Nickolai Nikolaievich Miklouho-Maclay "Maclay's Coast", appeared in 2013 in Kucha, near Sevastopol, not accidentally. In Sevastopol, near the Institute of Biology of the Southern Seas, the monument of Maclay was set for the 100th anniversary and the scientist is considered "father" of the biological station here. Maclay specifically traveled to the Black Sea coast, looking for a suitable location for the station, and then at the Congress of Scientists and Doctors in Moscow he offered to build it in Sevastopol. The scientific community supported his idea and in 1871 Sevastopol Biological Station was created, which eventually transformed into the Institute.
Museum introduces visitors to the life and work of the outstanding scientist, who devoted his life in the name of science for the benefit of HUMANITY. The museum has got a variety of interesting exhibits, photographs, drawings and a film fragment illustrating how Maclay was first met by New Guinea aboriginals. Museum visitors explore the multi-faceted and wonderful world of PEOPLE; discover SECRET the immortal soul of the genius; learn how Maclay, who had lived for less than 42 years, forever engraved his name into the grateful memory of mankind; and much, much more
