Private Museum Music and Time, Yaroslavl

(4.5/5 based on 460+ reviews on the web)
Explore the collection of antique clocks, bells, samovars, old irons, phonographs, and musical instruments at Private Museum Music and Time. John Mostoslavsky, a popular illusionist and magician, opened one of the first private museums in Russia in the early 1990s. His collection now occupies three historical buildings and features more than 1,000 bells and 10,000 records, none of which are hidden behind glass. Listen to the guides play popular tunes on the bells and unusual piano-organs. See how various gramophones and music boxes operate, while the clocks constantly chime. Guided tours are usually in Russian only. Put Private Museum Music and Time into our Yaroslavl itinerary planner and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • A small private museum. Exhibits of musical pieces and bells, really liked. Gramophones, hurdy-gurdies, musical boxes, Gramophone wonderfully played. First time heard live. Bells and small bells, very impressed. Collection of irons, the usual. In pereslavl-Zalessky is Museum of irons and more complete and interesting story. But here's a guide, not very much. All told very quickly without lights. Zauchenyj text, govorilsja monotonously type quickly and yet. But this is the only negative. I advise to visit.

  • Was repeatedly in this museum. Last time in the spring of 2016 g. small, cosy, well thought out. Nice guides. The Museum and the charming atmosphere reigns: ticking clocks, bells, Gramophone sounds ... It is a place where you can see that trifles and everyday objects-this is living history.

  • A fine example of private museum established and with love. This is one of the few places in the tourist infrastructure of Yaroslavl, which are really worth a visit. Even in a purely thematic site you can learn more about the history and customs of the Rus than state museums of Yaroslavl.

  • The museum has a lot of working exhibits. The museum will be interesting for people who are interested in history or music.
  • A museum good for a quick visit. It shows instruments to play music, tools and decorations in the past.
  • Very interactive display of rarities that you shouldn't miss if you plan a trip to Yaroslavl
  • Interesting tourist route. Very good talks about the exhibits girl-guide. Richly filled with a collection of all kinds of clocks, bells (my weakness, could not tear themselves away from the cabinets, quietly envied) and other Antiquities.

  • The Museum an interesting, albeit small. A bit spoils impression is very compressed in time tour (without examination)-because of this does not work as it should all consider.
