  • Since childhood I love hiking in this museum. Despite the fact that the exhibition does not undergo any significant changes, learn it all just wondering how many years ago.

  • For all the curious people and for children required to attend. Excellent collection and proper exposure. Everything is very colourful and visually. Children are very keen to examine. The wonderful world of stone and all the riches of the subsoil can be seen here.

  • To my shame, born in Moscow, for the rest of my life never heard about this wonderful Museum. In may 2016 year we rested in the Altai and the Museum. Fersmana told us in Barnaul stone Museum. It became embarrassing. And we decided to go. The Museum is located next to the garden and Entertaining occupies was built in the early 19th century, the building of the former horse Manege of count a. Orlov-Chesmensky he. Later, the building was owned by the Royal family, was rebuilt, it conducted floors-parquet, preserved ceiling and cover the ceiling with gold leaf. The Museum was created in the year 1716 in St. Petersburg called the mineral Cabinet of Kunstkamera. In 1934 year died in Moscow. In 1956 the Museum was given the name of academician Fersmana-famous mineralogist, in which the Museum has achieved brilliant results. Two hours we, Spellbound, admired in the Museum of the giant meteorites in the public domain (including the famous-"Pallasovo iron"), my favorite "baikalsky" čaroitom stone, malachite, Amethyst, diamonds ... The Museum houses order 140 thousand exhibits, stands and display cases presented in the order of 10% of them. And what are there wonderful stone vases and figurines of Fabergé (including most unfinished egg), landscape rocks, stalactites, crystals, collection deposits! Takes your breath away. Many thanks to Elena Olegovne Museum smotritel′nice that much talked and explained to us during the examination. She showed us in a separate glass Cabinet at the end of the Museum's miracle-stones that with as gray and nondescript, and after sending them ultraviolet rays suddenly begin to shine with all the colors of the Rainbow-blue, yellow, Brown, emerald ... Impressive. Five years ago, I visited the Mountain Museum in St. Petersburg State Mining Institute. In the past year-in Slyudyanka. on Lake Baikal. In May this year-in Brisbane. Fersman Mineralogical Museum of Moscow. Fersmana-the fourth Museum of the Pleiades in my practice. This year the Museum anniversary, he turns 300 years. Select two hours a trip there with children, examine exposure. Sure: she will not leave you indifferent!
