Interesting!

It seems quite small to me but it's really impressive. They've added a lot of interactive features and tehnologically advanced expositions that make it all the more interesting.

At first I was sceptical about the museum but turned out to be one of the best car museums I've been. The ticket was expensive but totaly worth it.

Even non technical people like me will find this place interesting because of interactive solutions to tell stories about cars and history. Really enjoyed and bought some souveniers for my little brother's sons.

I like old fashion cars and this museum didn't disappoint me. The differential here is that one will see old fashion cars (and motorcycles) from the Soviet era. The facilities are also very good: lockers/toilets/a small restaurant are in a tip-top condition. It's also a great attraction for small (and big) kids. Rest assured that they will not be bored....
