The Archaeological Conservation Area on the shores of the picturesque Andreevskoe Lake is a unique archaeological complex: traces of vanished colonies, fragments of ancient settlements, burial grounds, and Mansi sanctuaries dated from the 9th-13th centuries have all been preserved here. The exposition includes preserved jewels and cult objects that enable us to reconstruct the traditional lifestyle of the native peoples of the north. The From Within Centuries exhibition displays archaeological findings, preserved fragments of ancient settlements, burial grounds, and sanctuaries of Finnic peoples. The earliest objects belong to the Stone Age and date back to the 5th millennium B.C.
The first successful archaeological excavations on the shore of Andreevskoye Lake were conducted by the founder of the Tyumen local history museum I. Slovtsov in 1883. This date can be taken as the founding date of the Archaeological Conservation Area.
