The museum was founded in 1989 by Victor Rudolf — an enthusiast, connoisseur of history and ethnography. His collection of ethnographic objects of Selkups became the basis of the museum's collection.
At the present time the most valuable collections are: archaeological collection of Mangazeya; collection of material and spiritual culture of Taz Selkups (northern group); collection of manuscripts and early printed books; photo collection. One of the main attractions of the museum is an outdoor exhibition «Selkup house» (500 m2) located on the territory of the museum, which features wooden houses and buildings preserved in the traditional culture of Selkups, indigenous people of the Taz River Basin.
