Notice how the interior lighting resembles slanted rays of sunshine. The exhibits, divided chronologically in 12 galleries, evoke the lives of Russian Jews since the late 19th century, with special emphasis on the fate of Soviet Jews and the role of Jewish soldiers during World War II.

  • Was at the exhibition "the impossible is inevitable" and the main exhibition. Full adult-500 RV for them you get 4 d film on biblical subjects about who these Jews with English subtitles, the exposition of the Jewish version of a place in the history of this people with all sorts of technological twists, all again, with English subtitles Very interesting temporary exhibition, however, with a bunch of hidden advertising various mobile applications and Internet services. It is a pity that such museums have no other nations of our multi-ethnic State.
