  • Museums in such a plan, I really love, and could not pass up. This former communal transformed the Museum from a musical direction. Definitely come here with children, let them look than we lived and what toys we had. The Museum starts right from the door. Many, many exhibits almost all post-war years. The exhibits you can touch, and even try on their clothes))) well agree not in any Museum, you can do it) you can! Actually in this museum you can wander for hours, especially people of the older generation. Indeed, many of the exhibits we are distant memories of childhood and I caught myself thinking that I want to look at them, hear and sense of nostalgia absorbs completely. Blue Squirrel, cigarettes space plastic crocodile Gena, "e-type" designer bottles from kefir, cube-Rubik, overhead projector, posters and badges with the portrait of Lenin. thousands of artifacts, many of which, in one way or another connected with our lives. This museum, a Museum of nostalgia, the Museum of our times. Many of the exhibits you can buy for this there are special showcases. Prices are high, but it's worth it. Probably some thing for you particular road, and it will be found here, and you buy it, either by looking at the price. And the memory will stay with you! But the Museum also needs to live, therefore do not feel sorry for money for something to save the most precious thing that we had our happy past! Museum organizers huge gratitude for your hard work!

  • Visited families with children 6 and 13, liked everything). It is interesting to play with children in the guessing game: "what is this subject". For the elder staged photo shoot in clothing with symbols of "USSR", Jr. played in the toys of our childhood. Naval battle for 15kopeek). Return to childhood, though at the time, invaluable)))
