  • The set of exhibits - chic, but not enough modern supply material, the staff is very friendly, there is an audio guide free - you need to download the app and qr cola exhibit can listen to the information. But this is for adults and older children, for my son 4 years, it was not very interesting to listen, but if you did some room where you could put moving dinosaurs, can rollers what to show, guess there dinosaurs touch the shape and etc- was It's cool, kids love that. Toilets are old, changing tables are not, and I would like all museums to be kids friendly )))Museum we liked, but if it added interactives, a small cafe, changing tables - would be super.

  • For children it is very informative and interesting. A good kind of exhibits. The entrance is inexpensive, but i advise you to eat in the place of cafes, it is very expensive.

  • As an American that visited Russia it might be weird but this was one of the best highlights of a 3-month visit! This place is awesome. Amazing collection.
  • Some great exhibits, very little English signage. They have an audio tour, not sure wjat languages are available. It's an easy walk from the metro station.
