  • A small private museum with a rich collection of musical instruments and mechanisms, caskets, bells, clocks, irons. Founded by D. Mostrovevsky. The founder's case continues his descendants. Excursions are non-stop.

  • Yes, 300 rubles at present is not a big money, but not to visit this museum, the time of arrival in which will take about 20 minutes. There is a museum on the waterfront, the building attracts the attention of tourists, a cozy garden with apple trees, restaurant "assembly". But there is nothing to see: A collection of bells, irons and gramophone.

  • Great miseum! Recommended to visit first!
  • This place will impress a person of any age. You'll get to listen to music played by various ancestors of speakers, learn about different types of watch, see many bells and hear some facts about irons. The location is easy to find, the excursion lasts for about 40 minutes.
  • We've walked there by chance and never regret it! Very nice, although small, museum with a lot of bells and antique mechanical musical instruments. Excursion is a must and included into the ticket price
  • Nice
  • The museum has a lot of working exhibits. The museum will be interesting for people who are interested in history or music.
