  • Decide for yourself by all means, visit this museum. Firstly-negative for the loss on the official website, find the working hours of the Museum. As a result, mjorzli h under the door. Visited. Compared with Rumyantsev-Paskevich Palace in Gomel it looked easier, that. Yes, very nice, but everywhere "betrays" hint of modernity, and commercialization. (Ballroom). Exhibits not very much, quite a lot of things, not really "on" (the great patriotic war, etc.). In General, it is possible to recommend when visiting Nizhny Novgorod, but not "wow".
