  • A cool relatively small museum with a low entrance cost. Cool history of human artic and Antarctic travel, primary Soviet.
  • Nice experience. Good museum.
  • Little bit disappointed. A lot of ship models and information written in russian- too much to read in a museum. Expected more from one of the biggest such kind of museums in the world. Did not find value for the money (300RUB p/p).
  • Nice museum
  • Interesting place for children.
