Paid for a ticket to see the meteorite exhibit but on entrance to that room I kept getting 'shooed' away by the ladies who look after the exhibition. Tried on several attempts to politely get back in, but no one was having any of it or Made any attempt to help me. So I had no option and left without... More

I must say that I am also really impressed with the architectural solution for this building, both external/internal. Through big glass windows you can enjoy watching the... More

Nature sections houses meteorite and a lot of supportive materials, as well as an extensive selection of regional flora and fauna from ancient time till present moment. I mostly likes the section about different ethnic groups and respective household items.... More

I've been to the Museum for a couple of times, and I can tell you the place is right if you're into discovering the area inhabitants, animals, birds, and the like. What's more, the museum houses the meteorite that exploded in the skies over the city on Feb 15, 2013, and seeing it with your own eyes is a worthwhile,... More

Visited this Museum to try and get a sense of the history if the area. It has different sections on Modern HIstory (particularly the October Revolution and second world war and consequent rise of industry). However there are also really interesting Sections on the history of the confluence of different ethnic groups in the area, including clothing and social history.... More
