  • Come to the Museum passed the things in the cloakroom on the ground floor, called fixed telephone to us met and held in the museum itself. Paid 100 p, shoot himself in the free museum pass just have log keeper-admin you must write your full name, city, and put, if the number of group employees. In the Hall stand sofas, you can sit and relax. Suddenly a lot of stones. Most surprised muskovitovoe window of the chapel of the 17th century, as well as fossils in the form of shells and plant imprints on the stone. Very interesting analogy nature photo or things and natural picture them in stone. Overall impression is good.
