Mendeleev. Point of reference. International Museum Day

18 May 2022

Dmitri Mendeleev Museum and Archives together with the staff of the Institute of Chemistry present a joint excursion programme.

Every great phenomenon starts from something, and has a point of reference. Life begins with birth. Scientific discovery begins with a conception. A museum starts with the first exhibit. Dmitri Mendeleev initiated many changes not only in science but also in the development of the industry. Not all of Mendeleev’s discoveries are as well-known as his periodic table of elements. On Museum Day, we invite you to delve into the history of discoveries and the many endeavours initiated by Dmitri Mendeleev.
