A Visitor to a Museum (Russian: Посетитель музея, translit. Posetitel muzeya) is a 1989 Soviet post-apocalyptic drama film directed by Konstantin Lopushansky. It was entered into the 16th Moscow International Film Festival where it won the Silver St. George and the Prix of Ecumenical Jury.[1]


In a post-apocalyptic world (from an unspecified ecological disaster), the population is divided and decimated, including the so-called "degenerates" (mutants deformed as a result of some catastrophic event), and the survivors of the previous civilization. In the depths of the sea exists "the Museum"; it is a place which carries the remains of past civilizations and can only be reached during occasional periods of low tide when the sea becomes a barren desert.

The protagonist of the film is one of the few survivors who has managed to retain the human form and way of thinking.
