“Very Little in English”

Baikal Limnological Museum
Ranked #1 of 13 things to do in Listvyanka

There is very little in English at the museum and it is not cheap to enter so it is probably not worth the money if you do not have a guide. The seals are cute to see but there is a seal show in town which is better value!

A highlight of a visit to Lake Baikal is this little museum. Even if you aren't overly interested in biology, ecology or aquaculture, the facts and figures about this lake are eye-opening, and the exhibits here, particularly the aquarium at the end of the tour, are fascinating.

A rather average exhibition about the lake, research of the seabed since the 1970s, facts about the lake, flora, fauna, discoveries and so on. There is an aquarium with fish from the lake and you can watch a film for an extra charge. A nice look into the world of the fascinating Lake Baikal.

Interesting but a bit expensive for what it was. We went round in about 15 mins (given that only limited info was in English) which seemed quite limited considering it was £5 or £10 each.

We found the Baikal museum an enjoyable way to spend a couple of hours. Decent English speaking guide in the 'submarine' trip and good displays of geological information.
