  • We have been to this museum with my baby girl & my mum. All of us loved the exposition as it's a nice collection of cute mice in different forms. They can be stuffed or knitted, or carved, or done of ...  more »
  • A cosy place dedicated to mice. Toys, cartoons, books, everything about the mouse. Fun and lovely. Go there if you have a quarter of an hour to spare.  more »
  • Good morning, friends! Why only in Russia, because the mouse are found everywhere!? It seems to me that invent the mouse Museum could only Russians. Just think about that only in Ukraine you can taste a great variety of dumplings, for example! Myself personally witnessed this diversity in one of the varennichnyh on the route Kiev-Odessa ... But back to the Museum. It is said that the very small town of Myshkin, located on the left bank of the Volga River was formed after mouse saved the Prince Mstislavsky. And it was like this! Prince decided to relax with his Entourage on the Bank of the Volga River. Night snake crawled to him, which wanted him to bite, but the Prince woke up from what his face ran mouse ... Prince woke up, saw the snake and saved from death. That's about this Prince and it was decided to build a temple at this place holy to Boris and Gleb. Well, then this place over time, "formed a" city of Myshkin. In doing so, I can say that for such a small town it many places (museums), where interesting go. Yes, and did just fine. There and vessels dinghies with tourists stop. The mouse Museum itself is interesting and instructive. If you bring back your exhibit and bring it to the Museum. you all will be free.

  • Cool not expensive Museum. And if you make a mouse with their hands and give it to the Museum, you will receive a free pass for the rest of my life. I already have this.

  • The town of Myshkin greeted us good rain and therefore the photoreport on here was very modest. I hope to come here in good weather.

  • A small provincial town, quiet and cosy. Interesting Museum, which for one day is not circumvented. If you do not plan to leave the machine myshkin leave ashore, all the museums in the city. The ferry runs every hour for people for free. Machines from 250 rubles, depending on capacity.
