  • Visited today the exhibition "Andy Warhol. Endangered species ". A series of 10 portraits of rare animals. In fact, the Museum was first, I can say that here you have to go with children, they will be there Kaif. In addition to the main exhibitions, there is a greenhouse and Planetarium, and a whole lot.

  • Its good idea to visit this museum with kids. It has a lot of interactive stands to play and educate.
  • One of biggest nature exhibits places in Moscow. Anything you want to see, touch and learn about animal world, entomology, also plants ( a little less on this though) - is here. Recommending to plan spending around 2 hrs min for main floor, and at least 1hr for additional seasonal exhibits in the wing area. Grab to eat before, since alas there are no really good cafes of food stops inside
  • Pretty nice collection alongside with a temporary exhibition. Sometimes personnel is rude.
  • The museum is huge and great! It is very educational for all ages.
  • The exhibition is great and very large! It is very interesting for all ages so going there with kids or with friends is ok! Also, I'd love to visit it again as it was impossible to keep attention everywhere, some of the rooms we had to just go by. So large the exhibition is.
