  • 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
  • Very nice place. Friendly guide. You can buy old records. And whistles.
