It is fantastic and has a remarkably interesting history. The museum has an amazing homepage, it guides you uniquely even if you are unexperienced . In my Power Point I mentioned some of my favorite exhibits. I hope at future I will have the opportunity to travel to Russia and visit this special museum.
