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.

  • In the Museum you can only walk with a guide, a collection of interesting-irons, bells, clocks, musical instruments. But I must say that such a museum life now is practically in every regional center. Cons-a lot of people in a small area of the Museum, is high enough price for the Yaroslavl-300 rub. Once is enough.

  • Small, intimate Museum, interesting, unique, many old exhibits. All musical instruments are in working order. Located in the Centre of the promenade of the river Volga. All recommend visiting this museum.

  • Perfect about this little Museum and decided to visit necessarily. Nice collection of musical instruments, a collection of old irons can be compared with the collection of the Museum of iron in pereslavl-Zalessky. The biggest impression left game guide on the various bells-she sang the children's song "podmoskovnye vechera" and the national anthem of Russia. Tell a very interesting Museum in General. Recommend to visit uniquely!

  • 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
  • A museum good for a quick visit. It shows instruments to play music, tools and decorations in the past.
  • The museum has a lot of working exhibits. The museum will be interesting for people who are interested in history or music.
  • Very interactive display of rarities that you shouldn't miss if you plan a trip to Yaroslavl
  • Wonderful place! You can come any time and start the tour from any place, as shore excursions go in cycles. It is very interesting to talk with the guides, though, of course, without them it would not be so interesting. Definitely worth a visit!
