  • Located at the top of the steps up from the River Cruise Dock, this Museum is well placed for the tourists who arrive here to wait on their bus for a tour of the town. Unfortunately closed when we wer...  more »
  • Not so much a museum but a little shop sending pieces of art (?) made by inmates. Only if you are interested in that kind of stuff. I expected to see something back from Gulag time - but alas.  more »
  • Good morning, friends! In Uglich I came with my family more than once. There, what to see, eat, where to go. Beautiful vintage original town. A lot of museums. But here's a "forbidden zone" (prison Museum) left me for some ambiguous sense. On the one hand, it is interesting and cool (youth says about without it). This for sure I have never met or even heard of before. In our country this theme not only not banned, and even partly cultivated in songs and movies. It is clear that in places not so remote, get people are different, and in our country and it is not always the case, BUT! Mostly, of course, exposed objects there "folk art" with their originality, highest performance. There are some things that simply amaze! Although there are also improvised weapon made of GEARS for its use, as I understand it, by destination, there are real letters from prisoners. This and leaves a bit painful feeling, if you have a normal sense of self-preservation and empathy. Not from the sanatorium same write up. ... To sum it up: be sure to go and take a look. It's part of the history and life of our fellow citizens broad enough!
