On the website there is information that the exposition was closed for renovation till 1.09.15 years proved that this exposition closed so far, plus closed marble hall, the information on the site is not found. When we have supervisors, asking where "peoples of Siberia and far East", sent to see the diagram. No one knew what the exposition closed. In the Museum you can download audioguide, once you connect to free wi-fi. Recommend to do it in advance, because the speed of wi-fi in the Museum is very small. And neither the application nor the download to listen through the site tour. In General, presented a lot of exhibits. Probably with a guide would be very interesting to listen to Pro-peoples and their traditions, who live in Russia. Sightseeing tour for individual visitors is performed 1 times a day, 2 times Saturday.show original
