The museum offers audio tours in different languages, but, unfortunately, there weren't any English ones available when we arrived. We were told we would have to wait an hour so we decided to go through the museum without the audio tour. I'm not sure this was a good decision because there are loads of photos and objects to look at and very few of them have any explanation in English. I think we missed out on learning a great deal about the disaster and the people involved. The numerous photos around we're poignant, though, even without description.

I'm highly recommend to visit this place since even person who familiar with this terrible catastrophe find something new for himself. I was suprised that the station had been working after accident during 14 years and that reactor was physically stopped only in 2000. There are a lot of other facts that you find interesting in the musem. And finally, this museum, people (disaster fighters) who died will be always a reminder for future generations.

A very nice museum with much information in a relatively small place. Remember, you'll have to leave your bag to the guards when you enter. Bringing cameras cost extra.

This museum tells the story of the disaster. They should cater a little more for European tourists. A guide or digital guide is more expensive for Europeans than Russians? Not sure why. The displays are well laid out and it is cheap to get in, extra charges for a camera.
