  • Festival "landing-stage" returned me to this museum. Gladly walked through the halls with new exhibits. But, unfortunately, the situation with the staff hasn't changed. Look, I came to the Museum to learn something new, find peace of mind. It is not worth to be rude if you ask questions on exposure for which you are responsible.

  • Large and modern Museum of any antiquities. The main exhibit — Chelyabinsk meteorite. And next to him is a good fake woolly rhinoceros. There are many vintage stuffed (it neck 100 years). In 19 century muskets, decent exposure.

  • The Museum consists of three halls, collection Museum worthy, unfortunately did not impress meteorite-stone as stone. Most did not like the service at the entrance of a conflict with the cashier, which after passing the cashier during business hours the Museum refused to sell a ticket and was absent at his workplace for "good reason". Later a similar dissatisfaction about the late arrival to the Museum expressed garderobshhica. Very ashamed of "Museum workers" otozhestvljajushhih history and the face of this beautiful city.
