  • Incredibly atmospheric place. Premilye things city residents beginning 20 century, quiet rooms, floors and walls are paved with brick, demonstration film with views of the pre-war city under beautiful music allow you to plunge into the atmosphere of the old Königsberg.

  • I guess I was bored because I don't hit on a great film. Only 5-minute short in the first room. Somehow I want to commend the work of the staff. Very polite Lady. And so, the next time I will try to get on film, maybe change my opinion about this museum.

  • Want to visit Keningsberge? Then you to Fridljanskim goal. Here they opened, and you happen to be on the street of the old town of the burgher. Enough rich, peaceful and beautiful. Before you may the entire history of the city, captured on old tape. Amazing pivdenny Vokzal lane collected from household items, antiques and Museum exhibits. Funny, interesting, and the city becomes clearer and closer
