Overview

Уральский минералогический музей создан в 2000 году на базе коллекции Пелепенко Владимира Андреевича. В настоящее время в его коллекции находится свыше 10 тысяч эстетически совершенных образцов минералов и уникальных авторских работ из камня. Коллекция собиралась 35 лет и регулярно пополняется. Сказочный мир коллекции минералов - это гармония цвета и формы, величие и душа природы. И как сама природа многолика и переменчива в своем естественном проявлении, так и все, что представлено в экспозиции, завораживает своей неповторимой красотой. Музей предлагает экскурсионное обслуживание. Стоимость экскурсии по музею с группы – 300 рублей. Стоимость входного билета –100 рублей, для пенсионеров, студентов и школьников – 50 рублей. Так же музей приглашает любителей камня и истории Урала совершить увлекательные минералогические туры на автомобилях по месторождениям Самоцветной полосы Урала. При музее работает павильон «Камнерезная лавка». Полную информацию можно найти на сайте Уральский минералогический музей Пелепенко В.А.

The museum with the deological material from Urals. The professor on exam can ask a student: Where we can find this rock, except Urals? So one can see the complete geological survey of Urals mountains.

The museum was one of the best attractions in the city, but this November I found that it's closed. Visited the second address - ladies in the stone-shop told that the owner decided to close the museum temporary.

There are two mineral collections in Ekaterinburg. This one is a private collection and personally collected by the owner. As such it is an amazing array of specimens. I enjoyed my visit very much.
