  • Visited the Museum with a centralized excursion. Time flew by unnoticed due to the interesting story and interactive nature museum. For more thoughtful and deep-dive into the topic of hydropower with in-depth study of expositions time tours are not enough.

  • You have the opportunity to visit the Museum as saying which has no analogues in the world! I don't know, have not been able to check) just know that is one of the top five "best regional museums of Russia!" three floors in halls 11. The program is designed for children and adults. you on film, and at the end of the film, children cartoon. On the territory of the Museum there too, there is something to see. View on the Volga River beautiful. Visit the Office of the Chief and make a photo for memory.

  • Very cool, but come on guided tours only stands because there is no public access. Tell interesting, you can touch and take pictures. Entertaining for adults and children. When you visit Uglich and go here, you won't regret it.

  • This is an amazing place. The perfect guide told an interesting story about the creation of hydro, its work. In the Museum you can touch themselves, a lot to look at. Here the truth is very interesting. Museum of HPS is the most vivid impression of Uglich.

  • Before visiting recommend see schedule excursions, free entrance to the halls not only group during certain hours. Useful to visit the Museum with children for them and their own self-development. Children are happy. Good guide, dear exposure, many halls.
