    The only Russian mining museum in the gibsovoj mine, where you can follow the path of Gypsum mining, from old times to the modern production, a separate Exposition horror River, very interesting .... on the surface there is a small zoo where animals roam free pens there are exotic and carnivorous animals. Full size dinosaurs and they still stand and move and growl. the children really enjoyed it. Then ate at Cafe Afonya

    Been wanting to go to the mining museum and here have decided to enroll. Excursions are conducted by each day, if the group more than 10 people, please sign up, but if you are less than ten then you will be invited when gain hodgepodge. And here two weeks later I got a call, approved the amount of people and as they say welcome. The Museum is situated in Arzamaskom area of p. Peshelan d. Bebjaevo. By the way is the only museum with a valid mine. From Nino distance 118 km travelled for 1.5 hours. As anywhere in p. Peshelan will see the orange pointer and truck Bebjaevo, you there. Eat up to stop. Go to and find ourselves in the 70 's because all the buildings and equipment of the Soviet time. Find a guide, dress jacket and helmet, must suffer and continue to receive the torch. By the way I advise jacket dress, girls dressing up, then became not very sorry about this) Get the latest accessory-lantern, outcomes and instruction. dive to a depth of 30 m, but when you consider the mountain above us it turns out 70 m. As soon as we go into the mine immediately feel a strong draught, we were met by forced ventilation, so you should dress warmly, ambient temperature 0 degrees. The funny thing is when you come in summer in shorts, Shales and think that there is going to be warm. Guide about such tourists recalled with humor, telling, as they dance what would take:) On the way we met was not big dizelek, which was carrying plaster on a surface. Mine are working seven days a week and 24 hours (day shift exports gypsum, and night leads blasting).

    This museum was the purpose of our trip in Arzamas. We did not regret. On site, we conducted a briefing on security, and then there was the nainteresnejshaja tour. A unique Museum, the exhibition very interesting and informative. And most importantly, that the Museum plus is operating mine.
