National Museum of Culture and History

Those interested in the long and turbulent history of Belarus can do no better than to visit the National Museum of Culture and History, which chronicles the past from 40,000 BC through to the present. Among the most interesting exhibits are archaeological finds from the area's primitive societies, ancient manuscripts, a collection of folk costumes, and an exposition on the heraldry of Belarus.

Russian and Belarussian are both official languages, with the majority speaking Russian.

The currency is the Belarussian ruble (BYR), which is equal to 100 kopeks. There are no coins in circulation (plastic cards and tokens are used for the metro and public telephones). Currency and travellers cheques can be exchanged at banks and official bureaux de changes in Minsk and the larger towns. US Dollars and Euros are preferred and some currencies may not be accepted. Exchange offices may reject old/damaged notes and it is advisable to keep all receipts for exchange transactions as these may be required on departure, or when re-converting your leftover rubles. Mastercard and Visa are accepted at the larger hotels and tourist restaurants, but American Express and Discovery cards are not accepted at all. ATMs are widely accessible in major towns and banking hours are weekdays from 9am to 5pm.
