    The Museum is located not far from Metro, and yet within walking distance from the Exit at m. teply Stan (last carriage from the Centre, the farther from the glass doors to the left and along the Union St.). At the box office only accepts cash. In the lobby there are themed toys (dig out dinosaur skeleton, etc.). The Museum is interactive, visitors a little, exhibits weight. Lovers can spend there long. If someone would look like to see Tyrannosaurus Rex, but on the plate will another name (forgot what:))-don't worry. It's just my name is Mongolian. The caretaker told us. Very talkative man. Readily and humor answers questions of visitors:) Playground in the courtyard was closed:( It is a pity.

    a very interesting place to visit for both children and adults. A lot of exhibits, collected in the exhibit capture the imaginations of the mysterious world of ancient animals and plants from the most ancient to the almost modern. What particularly pleased-this is what the Museum is done entertaining quest during which children are studying dinosaurs.

Where to stay in Moscow

The capital of Russia and a huge metropolis, Moscow offers a plethora of different types of accommodations. Many renowned hotel chains are represented in the city, and some of its hotels rank among the world's most luxurious and expensive. Those traveling on a more modest budget can choose among the boutique or Soviet-era hotels. There are also numerous hostels and short-term rental apartments throughout the city. When choosing a place to stay, especially if you're only planning for a short visit, always bear in mind the size of Moscow. Staying too far from the center might mean that the precious time you could spend on sightseeing will be wasted in traffic and transport.
