  • The place is huge with everything from wrecks to Soviet-era, but if the goods are not familiar with so not terribly turn on, when there is no more information available. The staff could not speak English, so I could not even ask for more information.

  • The Museum has collected a lot of exhibits of the era of the SOVIET UNION. Many artifacts such as clothing and accessories, you can try. All you can touch. Also allowed to take photos. The Museum plays the music of those years. Very fun and atmosphere. Had a wonderful time with the family. Senior ponastolgirovali, junior could see what their parents lived. Polite and friendly staff. All are delighted. Highly recommended to visit!

  • I found there quite accidentally! Everything is in the Museum you can touch, have fun, and try on clothes. Soviet music in the background only adds charm. According to me, is one of the better places I have visited in this city!
