  • The first time I went to this museum. I can say that it shook my imagination. Some exhibits, unfortunately, were not understood me. As they say, the taste and color ... It was a little untidy to know that if you buy discount ticket (up to 21 years), then pay 350 rubles, and if you buy the annual subscription cost is 650 rubles. At this moment I still am indignant.

  • Heard a lot, was hesitant. But in vain. The Museum is simply excellent, all tastefully, tiny melochishki, and Nice. And excellent exposure, not for everyone, that's for sure. You need to prepare for a meeting with an unusual and certainly not a major decision next week..
