  • A terrific Museum, all very interesting, colorful, fun. The tour begins with a multlekcii of electricity, how to obtain it, the hydropower and the environment. Then hold in the Hall where talks about the history and construction of the Uglich HYDROELECTRIC STATION in the following halls of the interactive story about the world's hydroelectric power plants, hydropower, electricity is applied, other ways of obtaining electricity, and much more. Without fail, I recommend All hydropower MUSEUM in the town of Uglich.

  • Very interesting interactive museum. The largest in the country on the theme of hydropower. Excursion lasts at least an hour, so please be patient. In the courtyard stands a screw, served on HPS.

  • The friendly guides, interesting collection of information. Not enough real artefacts, more layouts and interactive maps. There is a comfortable lounge where the show films about the history of hydropower. Decent toilet, souvenir shop, vending machine with snacks (snacks), chest with ice cream. Of the disadvantages of a strange mode of operation guides, like that for hours.

Special thanks to the Guide for a very interesting story. At least 1 visit for sure worth it! Besides, is not far from the Kremlin.
