    29.07.2017 g. visited Chelyabinsk family Museum. Very original thought diversity temporary eras in this Museum, namely, there are ancient artifacts, there are Soviet era, as well as almost modernity)-a meteorite. Especially interesting was the Soviet era ' Arctic-80 years, as travel time by car: my parents as if the past were back, I visited in my childhood (1976 g), my daughter is 13 years old was not boring because we have much to tell about these exhibits: school uniforms, pioneering attributes, furniture, tableware, "technique". We were there as Museum exhibits))) next to the meteorite is a screen that briefly aired the event itself. All in all, it was interesting and not obsessed! At NES was not a guide, but I think that it is not needed in this excursion. Recommend for a family hike!

    Never expected that the Museum will delay me for several hours. Liked the exposure themselves with their attention to detail (birds, animals and even the extinct woolly rhinoceros) and, of course, impressed with the meteorite.
