    The building itself is already quite impressive. Inside the restored halls strike gold and fine luxury. Exposition recreates the life of the late XIX-early XX centuries were the same before patrons! Guide all available and interesting talks. Because when I was in year 2014, were not all rooms renovated, then around the mansion to pass failed, but what I saw was enough for me. On the third floor was the exposition of the nature and wildlife of the Nizhny Novgorod region. I advise you to go. In the Manor of photo and video cameras are allowed. The farm can also be solemnly to register the marriage.

    It all started with protection. We were greeted by the mildly speaking meanly. Continued at the cashier in the same manner. It immediately became clear that it is this Museum: Wild guests not only embraced by excursion group. Apparently much more revenue. After resolving all of the formalities, if it can be called, entered the first room, which examined a group with a guide. It has been seen that clients her damn tired. I tried to ask a question on the subject of the first Hall, but stumbled on hamskij response: "you are not from my group, so bother speaking, do not bother me". Not to spoil the impression of the Museum went alone and realized that most of the supervisors also applies to single visitors as something interferes with their service. And only in the redoutensaal of the caretaker turned out nice and kind woman, from which we learned more than from the remaining amount of more than a dozen. Who refers to himself sincerely say that visiting this site does not suggest nor as part of a group, nor can be, and in its composition.
