  • Permafrost Museum in igarka phenomenon. Here it is difficult to get into. In winter only by plane. First get to Krasnoyarsk. Hence fly planes in Igarku. Rate very high, almost 12 thousand. rub., while fly just 3:00. In summer you can get from Krasnoyarsk on the boat, but it takes three days. Use every opportunity to visit this wonderful Museum. It is located in the thickness of the permafrost at depths of 7-10 meters, subzero temperature. In December 2016, the street was Frost under 40, and Dungeon warmer-about 20 degrees. In overground part you can learn almost everything about permafrost, the Dungeon, which was dug for scientific laboratory for scientists-merzlotovedov. In the Museum you can see ancient tombs slices trees, samples of different types of ice, including the relic (age approx. 50 thousand years) of ice, delivered with icy mountains (according to scientists, the remainder of the glacier). A distinctive feature of the Museum-scientific-educational profile. Here are stored the installation, equipment used in different years merzlotovedy. There are rare exhibits at the exhibition "Pantry of eternity". Structure of everfrozen soils varied. Particularly attractive ice crystals on the vaults and walls, for young visitors there is a Santa Claus. From the unusual Museum, where you feel the breath of eternity, you leave with a sense of contact with her, as well as with the unfathomable diversity our planet's beauty, a force of nature. There is a division of the history of the construction of the railway Salekhard-Igarka (object no. 503 of the Gulag). Many items from the camps, information about the prisoners, among them there were many famous artists, painters, directors). In winter it is difficult to get here, except that trip in Igarku or Especially oil field. And here in the summer, you can contact the firm Polonia, she is engaged in tourism on the Yenisei and can deliver wanting in this museum. You can hit the road and free tourist such here, they say, is too much. Obsessed with people is the fact and persistent. So go for it! Choose your way to see the unique museum within the Arctic circle.

  • In the Museum you can see and permafrost, and Exposition of nature and historic. And a separate House with an exhibition dedicated to the heroic construction of Stalin's time, the so-called 503 s. Forgotten by many Transpoljarnoj backbone Salekhard-Igarka. Museum workers is beyond praise!
