  • Visit to the Museum will be useful to all those interested in the history of the world's most famous designer of the automaton. I'm lucky in life to go with him on a business trip-incredibly humble and simple man! And the entire Exposition tells about it. Also recommend a visit to the shooting range and shoot from very different kinds of weapons, and historical and contemporary models. Do not forget your driving licence (Passport no good!), which will confirm that you are not crazy and not an addict!

  • Yesterday I was in this beautiful Museum, where do you see the whole history, documents and weapons. Truly amazing place where you can disassemble and reassemble a k47 and you can even shoot in the firing range, prices are also very low. If passed in this beautiful city you must of course pay a visit to this museum.

  • In the Museum we got with the times of the third visit to Izhevsk. Unfortunately, the museum itself is more devoted to his own successes and his family than his works. This is very very sad. The best there is in this complex-shooting range. The choice of a remarkable the rate available.
