  • I remember this museum from childhood, when I was led by my parents-miners. Then it impressed me a lot and for many years was a favorite place. Malachite, Rhodonite, blocks of rock salt, pyit, fragments of meteorites, stone cutting ware and many other things amazed my imagination. Now after many years I got there again, to be honest I was very afraid to be disappointed, but it did not happen, I was again interested. In my opinion this museum is one of the most unusual and authentic places in the city. It reflects in many respects "the salt of the Ural Land", of course, but the truth. He is part of the history of the Urals and Yekaterinburg, and personally for me it is also a continuation of Tales P.P. Bazhov. This place is an amateur and not everyone will like it, but still once here it is worth to come.

  • Very nice museum. Many unusual finds, but less than different ores. We were pleased with the samples of very rare elements (Iridia, for example). But there is a small, but minus-shooting must be bought. It is worth, of course, quite a bit and a little and the museum wants to support, but (most likely I was unlucky) on each floor several times asked the same ticket.

  • The museum was very nice, the kids were happy. There is an exposition on meteorites. You can take pictures only for an additional fee. They sell mineral collections in the cashier.
