The museum is nicely located in an Egyptian building. We spent more than an hour at the museum. It was interesting that it covered several tribes in Siberia. There was also some English explanation which was very welcome. This museum give a bit the idea of how people used to live here.

A little odd, but at least that makes it easy to find. The museum has exhibits on a wide range of subjects. There are large displays about animal life, featuring many stuffed... More
