  • Worth visiting just outside the Kremlin main entrance, details Tsarist Russia, Medieval Times, Ethnography  more »
  • A beautiful building in the heart of Kazan. Excellent renovation and organization of space, but the construction of the exhibition is generally strange. Apparently from the old times the museum got a large archiological collection, which occupies the entire first floor, and a collection dedicated to the revolution and Kazan revolutionaries of different scales, which occupies a significant part of the second floor. There is a lack of exposition dedicated to the history of the city, its people, architecture, legends. Most impressed: a painting of a modern Kazan artist dedicated to the taking of Kazan (rethinking of this event), a treasury with jewelry of Tatar women and coins and a giant beluga. What a boat from childhood.

  • Tatarstan National Museum in front of the Kremlin entrance. The history of the Republic of Tatar is exhibited from prehistoric times. The description is based on Russian and Tatar, so if you want to know more, you should bring a Russian interpreter with you. Exhibits and preservation were solid. The exterior of the building itself is beautiful. When I visited, part of the facility was used as a wedding ceremony.

  • Good introduction and overview of Tarstan culture. Sadly most of the signs are in Russian and Tarstan language, less English.
  • Interesting place containing many originals of old excavations found on the current territory of Kazan as well as Ivan Grozny and Ekaterina The Great presents. Worth visiting.
  • Very interesting museum with some very impressive art
  • It is a wonderful museum. 2 big floors. For 150 roubles. Worth it
  • This is not only a beautiful architectural complex of buildings, but also a huge repository of countless exhibitions and museum exhibits, the volumes of which are amazing without exaggeration.
