  • I myself love from Chelyabinsk, stones semi-precious gemstone, this museum was therefore we with the husband must to visit in Yekaterinburg. Minerals very much, a lot of interesting specimens there are meteorites. You can take pictures, but for a fee. Upset course building itself, the premises are very old, somewhere is not enough light, many cabinets "resistant to flare." But overall-impressions-sea!

  • All guides in Ekaterinburg geological Museum is listed as a place of compulsory to attend. Having trusted this information went and I go there. You know, I still can't clearly and precisely worded sense of delight that I experienced while there. I opened a brand new Galaxy called "Riches of Ural". A rich collection of minerals is located on 4 floors is not very little building. Very recommend to take a guide or acquaintance other geologist to learn all sorts of interesting places. I can tell exactly what you really want to delve into the world of gems and stones. I was very interested to look at the different types of rocks under the microscope. Simply indescribable beauty that neither camera will not be able to pass. Describe in detail what I saw there, I see no reason, just tell everyone who reads this review necessary to visit. you forget about time and move in a different era. A pleasant visit the geological Museum))))

  • The only museum that I visited this town exploration until now. and the slightest regret about it. on the one hand, of course, the stones lying in dusty display cases during the first five-year plan, on the other hand, yet so interesting fossils of animals and plants, different varieties of stones that I previously took for ordinary stones. strongly recommend to visit, if possible, take a tour. Gold and diamond nuggets-raznochvetnye and brilliant, but there are so many interesting gray and colorless stones!

  • The Museum is great, but thanks to the skilful» guide impressions very contradictory. It is not clear why the excursion is limited to 45 minutes? The guide moves slow everything our interests and preferences were it to anything, and after the allotted time (She rang a signal on mobile phone) left us in the middle of the Hall with the words "next, please themselves." It was a shame for such a party before my guests from St. Petersburg. The next time I find a guide by. Will be more reliable.

  • Great geological Museum. Probably better to take the tour, because we understood little of what they saw. Exhibits a huge number. Many are repeated many times. Why is unclear 😳 4hjetazhnom Museum is housed in the building where the ground floor-ticket office and gift shop, and the remaining three floors of the Museum. Plan at least two hours to spend here, if you want to see EVERYTHING. 4th floor-paleontological. Children are better off with him starting. When the cashier in the shop or at the gift shop you can buy quite a decent collection for beginners-30 stones (approximately 3 * 2 cm) with the names of over 1500 p.

  • Traveled with children 5 and 8 years. Take a tour of the Museum and spent an hour and a half and we clearly did not have. If the elder still listened to the Guide, the junior course soon lost interest and just ran from showcases to showcase. Without a guide, it would probably get bored. In General, I recommend this museum. I would like a little more of something to touch.

  • A great many interesting museum exhibits: crystals, minerals, stones, tusks and teeth of mammoths, etc. work shop with souvenirs from the stones. There are guided tours for groups. A separate exhibition about meteorites including "Chelyabinsk". Interestingly all recommend to visit.
