  • Very modern, interactive, a unique Museum. An adult ticket costs, if I am not mistaken-200 roubles. Excursions-Group and conducted in 11, 13, 4:00 pm. We arrived in Uglich around 11.30 and wait for the next group was not possible, so went on a personal tour by paying for it-2000 rubles and it definitely was worth it! Tourist guide-Natalia Vladimirovna-enthusiastically described the history of the hydro and other power plants worldwide, thanks to her for that. Listening is not coming off. Its role was played by our relevant speciality in University-Guide-a very erudite and able to answer all your questions, apologizing in advance if suddenly allow some errors in terminology. The Museum is a great number of interactive objects-tablets, screens, bicycle to generate electricity, monitor, sliding along the long layout: picture is synchronized so that regardless of the speed and direction of motion of the screen, the image is embedded in reality (!) installations, reflecting the principles of operation of the HYDROELECTRIC POWER PLANT, its construction, replacement of units, etc. All the exhibits can and should be a separate component excursions J touch is to view short films on the history of HES, construction, etc. I would like to mention the fact that when we have finished viewing few issues arose for historical and technical aspects, Natalia Vladimirovna reacted with due understanding and suggested that if we still have time, watch more movies and presentations. In total, time-more 2:00 lasted. I do not know whether the relevant to visitors from a number of people in the Group (and there were two of us) or is it just due to the high qualification and professionalism of staff, hope last) we can now say with absolute certainty that we know about hydropower and power-everything! We strongly recommend you to visit!

  • Rich, relatively new Museum. But there is one drawback. The excursion is only possible with a guide who leads "galopom Po evropam". Not enough time to see photos, read materials.
