  • Great place. Everyone is welcome here.
  • Very kind and atmosphered place. Amazing theatrical excursions
  • A very interesting place.
  • Interesting place, but no point in going if you don't speak Ukrainian. Nothing in English and not very helpful personnel (trying to find a nice way of saying very rude). We were literally physically pushed around, and when picking up an A4 paper with explanations we got shouted at. Interesting experience, interesting place, but one of the worst museum experiences I've had so far.
  • Very good theatre. One of the best in Moscow. Performances only in Russian
