  • It's simple building but with rather reach and complete collections and more, very kind people and they know about what they speak. They need, as usual in such type of cultural sphere, money. So don't hesitate go, visit and at the end, when you are tired, enjoy a drink.
  • Unfortunately big part of museum was closed for reconstruction when visited this place. But I still loved everything I saw and recommend everyone to visit this museum. I honestly can't wait to come back and still whole place. Entrance fee is only 6rubles which is approximately $3
