  • Was this Museum 2 times in the first we had the whole group, with the girl in the dress of the time liked PTS exciting telling about the life of a merchant, as if she herself was a member of his family))), we were excited! I on the joys of a year took his girlfriend who has come here to visit the Caucasus. We came for 30 min prior to closing. Does anyone know this man, but the man who conducted the tour was just the boor, constantly saying that we are close, he has no time, otveshival Sebaceous jokes ... In short, after 10 minute race we shocked went home. Yes this doesn't happen to you..)) and the location is good, you need to go

  • House Tetjushinova very long standing in an abandoned, dilapidated condition, but even in this form, he threw in the eyes of its lace beauty. I am very glad that this resulted in the order of the tower and made him the Museum. The Museum is small, well-groomed. The workers are helpful. We wandered with children there at the moment of calm, but we held individual remarkable tour of the ancient rooms. Of course, exhibits in the House a bit lacking, but the old atmosphere is still present. In this House the Museum often hosts various exhibitions and workshops. We have not regretted that spent time on a visit to the Museum.
