  • The first time was when the museum was just opened. !!! The whole country! Trains and cars, you can see underground subway, it is interesting to consider different everyday scenes, nature, places where already was and where else you want to go. Thanks to the creators of this wonderful layout! Go with the kids, go with your parents. Everyone will be interested!

  • It was a great experience in this museum where you can have a overview how Russia looks like. Everything looks so real even some small details. I am pretty sure you will be impressed and excited from all the city models of Russia no matter how old you are (children, teenager, mature, elderly...). I am really recommend this for anyone and this museum is some kind of saving your money to explore the Russia instead of using helicopter, hahaha
  • I was stunned by this attraction! The largest country in the world fit in one room! So many fun details - you can study them for hours.
