  • The Museum is made is not quite a classic, rather a purely contemporary)) he is interactive: get into the corner of the old Königsberg, walk on the pavement, you hear the sounds of the streets 19 century, horses, carriages. It makes sense to book an appointment, and while not particularly high Museum, try not to hurry)

  • Inside is an interesting display of old things. Many household things beginning 19 century. Curious to see. Built in the late 19 century.

  • Not to say that a place of unique or mandatory to visit, but the collection of exhibits here are awesome. Basically, all devoted to Kenigsbergu. Virtual tour not impressed-just displaying photos (slightly moving) under the urban background noise. Nothing explains. On the photo there is inscription-without glasses.
