  • Museum of music and time is on the Volga River embankment, a beautiful building with a pleasant territory near the hotel and shop with souvenirs and vkusnjashkami. The museum itself is very small-4 Hall, crowded, many people-but it's okay, it's worth it-the place is popular, you need to be prepared for this and everything)) definitely worth a visit! Under the rules of the Museum to photograph you, you cannot shoot. entrance cost 300 rubles, if I am not mistaken. You can also attach a circular tour. Nice-large collection of various antiques-irons: from ancient to modern, almost all are telling and showing. Many different hours, icons, bells, which play a melody. as well as all sorts of musical instruments-set listen to plastics, played on piano. + good maintenance trips-interesting and exciting) very cool! wonderful place, immersed in a different era. I advise to visit!

  • Great private museum! Thanks to its founder. Very warm and welcoming attitude towards visitors. You will never see such a large number of all kinds of clocks, gramophones, gramophones, bells, irons, samovars and other things. A wonderful example of how people can just make an interesting and unusual and share these with others.

  • There is something to see, and not feel sorry for (small) money, many hours of old gramophones, etc items. Interesting. Why not 4 or 5? -Just in season, and a lot of people a little. When one guide said, the second simply inaudible. But the place is definitely worth a visit.

  • 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!
