  • In addition to the expositions of the Museum building, which many and detailed written in previous reviews, this year in the Baikal Museum added another "virtual dive to the bottom of Baikal" is acquaintance with the plunge inhabited apparatus "PISCES class DSV-XI". Its last dive this unit performed in 1991 year in Baikal, define its maximum depth of 1637 meters. Ticket to visit fairly expensive-500 RV Excursion private-for one or two people. Inspection of very small premises, where up to three 10:00 story about how they are produced and how research, viewing on the screens of Illuminators record dives-all this is quite entertaining. The new exposition will find its audience.

  • Very nice room with microscopes, where the living can be considered small inhabitants of Baikal. The museum itself is very interactive

  • Don't expect the Museum something supernatural and zapominajushegosja. Admission is r. 310 per person (August 17). for these 310 you get a brief history of the formation of the Lake, info about who it inhabits and as researched. All the acquaintance will take minute 30-40 (only 3 floors). But this is only if you are not a fan of and/or nauchnikom rocks and water. There is a small Oceanarium. Worth it to go just to leave a tick, but nothing more.

  • Though not all exhibitions and descriptions are in English, you still get a good value for money at 310rubles. There is an aquarium with 2 Baikal seals among other Baikal fishes. I liked the 15mins Baikal diving movie which is in English.
  • The museum itself looks nice, but if you don't speek and read russian, it is really hard to understand everything.
  • Nice museum, teaches you enough about the lake
  • Very interesting limnological museum.
  • Great museum shame not more information in English
