  • The Chamber of curiosities for tedious waiting for a half hour I present within the queues at the entrance to the Museum. Yes Yes it is in the queue. Run for 10 people, about every 10-15 minutes. The museum itself is split into categories, China, India, Indonesia ... A lot of different interesting things seen on the Web, on channels with travel. Very informative variety of deformities in children who zaspirtovany in banks. This is the best advertising against propaganda of alcohol and smoking. Memorized for a long time. Leisure in principle quite good Museum)
