  • April 30, 2017 16-30 Time. The Museum is open until 18-00! Any announcements about shortened bottom nor on the Museum's website, nor in it! Planned to go see the Museum just in the evening, and left 1.5 hours. Came, the guard said-and the cashier has already passed, today a shortened day! That's disgusting! It is during the holidays, when people are traveling from other cities, they themselves arrange any abbreviated days! Yes, and there is no information about this anywhere-especially approached and watched the night before! A very negative impression of this! In Ekaterinburg on the contrary ALL May Day holidays museums worked and rested may 2-3! Here is the correct approach! And Orel for Museum and Director, Mr. Minakovu-shame!

  • Orlov Museum of local lore is one of the oldest in Russia. Located in trading numbers in Eagle St. Living room, d. 2. Originally in the 16-17 century stalls were wooden, but unfortunately, in its original form to save them failed, in connection with the repeated urban fires during enemy attacks. Every time stalls rebuilt again and in 1849 a year at local merchants were built new stone series. The building was originally two-storeyed, but after the war to them was attached to another floor. Today in shopping series except for Museum, library and shops. I dream that someday the city drew attention to this monument of architecture and recreated the atmosphere of 19 century (as is done in Kolomna)-shops with mini-museums for the production of goods (which they sold), sellers in the costumes of the era, etc. the Museum Exposition enough extensive and interesting. The story of the Oryol province begins with the era of living mammoths and rhinos on Earth, as well as affect the period of the bronze age, the Russian middle ages, etc. occupy a special place in the Museum exhibits of the 18-19 centuries, brought from noble estates and obtained as a result of the confiscation of apartments of wealthy citizens. A separate room dedicated to the years of the great patriotic war. The Museum hosts exhibitions all the time, for example: on domestic farmers, where you can get acquainted with their way of life, costume, etc.; devoted to pictures of Orel Art photographers, etc. cost of individual trips for 2 person amounted to 1050 rubles and 140 rubles for admission. You can buy tickets at the Museum box office without prior reservation. Only cash. The Museum is open from 09.00 to 18.00 daily. Recommend for compulsory attendance, preferably with excursion)))) All enjoy!

  • An excellent museum. a great number of exhibits. Sometimes visits Butterfly exhibition, very beautiful. A terrible aunt. Gets mad and screams. But it's nothing terrible. Do not worry, you will not walk it (probably).
