  • Before you get inside, you must defend not such as the Hermitage, of course. However, in the cold a little pleasant. Of course if you have not bought a ticket in advance. In the so-called Cabinet where "freaks in banks" photography is prohibited. What this is strictly monitored. Although despite this walk photos on the Internet. The permanent exhibition is interesting. Us is best remembered for "Japan". It would not be bad if the information in the Museum precisely in the halls of exhibits more tell a story, the purpose of the subject. Where the exposition about the Lomonosov and the Academy of Sciences of 18 century, as for me so little light, and enough gizmos themselves.

  • Very interesting exhibition, but honestly the most exciting thing here is definitely the Kunstkamera itself. You won't believe what mother nature could do with us. 
  • Each student has ever heard of Lomonosov, on how the Russian Academy of Sciences was founded. And about the "Kunstkammer". So from childhood dreamed to visit! At box offices accept bank cards, a toilet and a café. All decently, Hist, stolpovo. Interesting exposition. Many children and foreigners. The only negative-the ban on wearing the backpack. Nowhere with such hitherto not encountered. Had to carry in their hands.
