  • One of the best museums in Kazan. Were 18-year-old daughter. Afraid that it would be boring. No such luck! She ran the Hall ahead of me. Museum of heartwarming. Almost all can be taken in hand, look, try. There is a working slot machine "torpedo attack". A separate Hall of Fame rockier. Organzovan in the center of the Hall a small movie theater, so you can sit back-relax. The prices are quite affordable, roughly 100-150 rubles. So welcome to USSA. And don't forget the Museum of childhood.

  • I love unusual museums)) a lot of interesting stuff in this place. Those unfortunate coupons for products that say all our moms)) last I saw them)) fun pofotkat′sâ in all Soviet pieces! You can play old arcade machines. Meets the Director of the Museum) very cordially. The only thing that I didn't like: I was with a friend from India, so all attention was given to him as a foreigner, to the dear guest) (the funny thing is that he was not as interesting as me. "it's my story!) it is certainly good that there love to visitors from other countries, but I am a full-fledged visitor and tourist) would be nice if all will be treated hospitably even if visitors whole life lived in the USSR and Kazan) So all sorts of little things Soviet. If everything can be seen all day hang)) a nice place in General!

  • The Museum is a real time machine, which migrates in Soviet childhood and youth of those caught this era. We laughed like children. So many memories pulled out memory. It is known that childhood is the happiest time. So I would like to say a huge thank you to Rustemu for those happy memories, which gives his brainchild. Good luck and prosperity. Irina k.
