  • In the small town of Yaroslavl oblast-Uglich is located very very interesting and contemporary Museum-Museum of hydropower. It was opened in 2009 year and located at Uglich HYDROELECTRIC STATION. Adult tickets cost 200 rubles, tours are held at 11, 13 and 4:00 pm. We came in Saturday at 4:00 pm, tours were alone, turned out to be purely private excursion, thanks guide Elena, tells about the history of the power plant and other gidroob'ektah countries, listened with enthusiasm not coming off. In fact, after the tour I want to once again pass through the halls and learn more about each exhibit is really breathtaking. In addition, there are many interactive elements-tablets, screens, bicycle to generate electricity, and more. Be sure to advise you to visit such cool museums around the country are not so much, and I was in many cities of Russia.

  • The main thing is not the fact that he is the only one in the world. Great guide, exhibits that can and should be touched. Move and rotate) on the go tours show informative video. And very knowledgeable guide. In my opinion the level of Weapons Museum in Tula. Only about electricity))

  • Quite an interesting Museum, especially for schoolchildren. Adults, especially familiar with the subject will miss the actual technique: instead of her simple layouts and installations. With this exposition is created by the concerned people. Two discoveries I particularly liked. The first local live projections on walls and structures, especially at the edges of abstract figures, laid out along the route. The second monitor, sliding along the long layout: picture on it is synchronized with the models so that the image is "integrated" into reality, with what speed and where neither pull the screen. Big plus: quality tours does not depend on the number of visitors. Guide Anastasia all honestly described to me one.
