  • The Museum should rather be called the Museum of the Soviet relation to the visitors. Incredibly annoying staff-starting with the Treasury over a kind of security to the individual parts of the Supervisory Board of the exposure. One each of these ladies as would use the time machine from the Stalinist Gulag to the present. Exposure is dusty, faded and had obviously long ago neaktualizovaná. The exhibits themselves would be very interesting, though is occasionally dust, paint or add better explanations.

  • Really how I'm not a big fan of museums. But interesting! Planetarium-generally excellent. And not so many people, both in Moscow. And the prices are lower

  • Were in Kaluga and managed to squeeze in time for visiting of this Museum; Indeed, it is a museum with a capital letter. I want to bring my son here. But given enough time, but not for a couple of hours.
