  • Looked inside to warm up in the hope of minus 20, eventually froze even stronger, as the Museum is not heated, but it truly remarkable. Liked the stands, information is sufficient, but not excessively many, large print, easy to read. Surprisingly well-preserved artifacts. Visited without excursions, but learned a lot.

  • Visited the Museum in January, very much! Probably, if you'd just entered and walked on it themselves, are unlikely to be impressed. Took a tour, unfortunately, do not remember, what was the name of the Guide, but if I am not mistaken-Alexander (young guy, 30-35 years)-telling just very interesting! The excursion lasted about 30 minutes, it was enough to see everything. Longer there was difficult, because the Museum has no heating (you want to maintain a certain temperature and humidity to keep the excavations), so the Museum is VERY cold! Colder than on the street. But the visit is a must!
