  • We went on the day of the city - for free. There were not many people. The museum has four floors. Watch all not to view :))) Good to eat cafes where you can have a snack and take a break. Animals ooo is very much so. There are comps with games for children, you can take pictures in the virtual forest :)) in the exhibition there are even dinosaurs snarling and moving. A large collection of butterflies and other insects. We loved it. Around the museum are statues of dinosaurs. We advise others with children to visit this museum!!!

  • If you have preschoolers or elementary school - yes! Very educational. If you're an adult and your kids are older than high school - hardly. Exhibits are very outdated, 70-80s, and performed for the most part just awful. The museum is not interactive. The exhibits haven't changed since the opening. Visiting free on museum day - yes. Visiting for money is a waste of money in the empty. Interesting experience, but i will never come back here

  • Very good museum. Need at least 3 hours to see everything. Lots of stuff for kids to touch and play with
  • Yet another time I am convinced that the museums in moscow are simply rubbish. This one in particular is overpriced and overrated. Had do wait an hour queue outside to get in. The specimens in the museums do repeat from one hall to another. And also the dinosaur outside of the museum is misleading, there are no dinosaur fossils at all. Do not go there!
