Why locals love it

It’s a remarkable opportunity to live through a week of exploring Russia in just two hours. This 800 sq meters masterpiece gives generalized idea of different regions of Russia and exhibits any aspect of everyday life you could imagine with change of time/weather/seasons on the background.

Why you should visit it

Outstanding attention to details makes this project interesting and amusing both for kids and adults. Looks like all the characters live here their own lives. Admission is pricey (10€), but it is totally worth it.

Special tip

It’s sure better to go there any other time than school vacations to avoid the noise and crowd.

Kids love it, but I (and three of my friends who went with me there) have found it boring. I think it didn't represent enough artificial and natural wonders which exist in various parts of Russia, so the educational value is low (there's also no written commentary about notable features that were modelled, however audio guide might compensate for that - I haven't tried). It's a bit fun to look at moving models of trains and cars, stopping at intersections and going in various directions. I actually think this is more of a transport simulator. The amount of work that went into it is impressive. A guest from abroad will probably like it - because the scenes of life in various regions of Russia, architectural styles and the models of military vehicles and civilian service cars should still look exotic to him.
