  • The trip was scheduled for Saturday in 08.04.2017. On the map I looked like beforehand go and decided to stay at the cash desk # 1, that Elias highway. Parking space we haven't found, had to return to the Museum of technology and turn left (if going from mkad to the side of the manor). Parking turned out to be an open, apparently not yet worked as a barrier. Summer season in Homestead with 21.04. most likely it will be paid, because there are terminals. Ticket we have taken over 500 rub. -single. And had time to get around and the Colonnade, and outhouse, and a Palace. To come it would be early (we arrived at 14-30), then would have time to watch a movie at the Palace. The Palace, like the STOA (up to 15-30), and Wing to 16-30, so I had to hurry. On entering we encountered the strangeness, although can opened. We wanted to visit the washroom and revealed that all stationary closed-near the colonnade and the Palace. On the way to the lower Park, we met composting toilets, which were partially closed. Okay, we adults, but with a child it will be extremely uncomfortable to visit them. The smell is likely high cross-country ability will be appropriate. If there is a login in the amount paid 150 rubles per person, I think stationary toilets must be not only prior to the closure of the Palace, etc. attractions. I can even suggest that they have not been opened. It was a moment that slightly blur the impression of. The territory itself is clean, the air is fine, there is a possibility to go down to the pond. We were in rubber boots, so we managed to get to the far corners of the part we were lucky that it was raining, we had raincoats, so he was not afraid. In connection with this weather, it was little people-and there was a sense that we are one. By the evening, the weather improved and the people before closing began appearing on tracks. 01 may Museum celebrates 100-year anniversary, but I don't like large concentrations of people, so we chose April to visit. In General, we all enjoyed it.
