  • 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.
