  • Been here with friends and children. By pass failed. Good exposure, many interesting instances of Soviet life which has passed my childhood. Go, you won't regret it.

  • Agreed that the Museum this place is not called. Most of the exhibition. Many things exhibited as it seemed to me, chaotically. But go!

  • Visited this Museum and a couple of times with friends who came to Kazan from different cities, but would not believe all the same friends reaction to visiting the Museum. Once all were leaving the Museum, were all very glad that went there immediately was reminded of many funny stories from his childhood. Recommend to visit necessarily. The more there are kind and friendly staff, and even there we can all touch and try:-) It will be fun-you won't regret it;-)
