  • Standard Museum; There are also interesting exhibits and a completely empty; but the main attraction for quite some time now (i.e. falling in) this Chelyabinsk meteorite. Will be interesting to visit children

  • If you haven't been-go necessarily. It's a real contemporary Museum. Located in an excellent location in the center of the city, there are many other interesting places within walking distance. There are always several different exposures. It will be interesting to children and adults. And if you don't know where to lead visitors from the other city-start with the Museum, walk along the Kirovke to the Revolution Square, walk through the square past the Drama of Alexander Pushkin Park.

  • The Museum is worth a visit without fail! In the spacious, bright complex is lined with interesting exposition telling about the history of the land and its wildlife. There are unusual "special treats" like a rich collection of stones, located directly in the Museum courtyard, and Ural meteorite, which tells the whole Exposition, which includes interactive tools showing.
