  • Would love to see what is the pride of the Ural-kaslinskoe casting, steel products and the Ural gems. Impressive Chronicle of human genius unfolds here. There are in the Museum and art gallery with paintings by famous Russian artists, but their work is better represented in museums in Moscow and St. Petersburg.

  • A perfect place for those who wish to join the spiritual values. Interesting exhibits quite regularly updated exhibitions. One bad thing-still small square and divided pitches (the second is located on St. Weiner). All lovers of both classical and modern art is required to visit!

  • A very affordable and rewarding way to spend an hour or two. The building it's self is quite nice and specious. The layout is simple and easy to follow. Collection includes bronze works, paintings, historical furnishings from the Hermitage, photography, and contemporary crafts. All Russian works.
  • Simple place, that's part of its magic. I guess the experience depends on the changing exhibitions that can be very interesting, since the permanent ones are not especially great.
  • Not boring
  • The most interesting and exclusive exhibit pavilion, manufactured at the Kaslinskom plant. Casley is a city in Chelyabinsk oblast. I wonder when our neighbors were asked to bring it back, "homeland"? Lovers of painting, too, will find a lot of interesting things. Interesting idea reconstruction of a historic building. Boca building saved, but in the Centre of vstoili glass design. This is clearly seen on the photos.
