Attraction details
Owner description: On the 8th of June in 2012 the national show-museum «Grand Maket Rossiya» opened its doors hospitably for the wide auditory. By this time, thousands of citizens and quests of our city watched this unique exhibition. On the layout area of 800 square meters you will see the generalized images of cities and regions of Russia. Hundreds of moving trains and cars, sound and light effects add dynamics to the exposition and thousands of tiny figures make the genre scenes. Add the astonishing effect of day and night changing doesn`t leave a single visitors indifferent.

lots of unnecessary rules, long waits and gaps between the galleries. you may visit though, it is not a must. all in all i did not like it. it was not what i had expected.

“Train Modeler's Dream”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 July 2014

My wife and I visted the Grand Maket Museum. Make sure you have a map to find it, but once you get close there are signs directing you to the museum.
I found it to be a great place to visit and very entertaining. There is a coat room that you have to check your coat in, for the displays are right next to you and you will see why you shouldn't have a coat with you.
we were detailed at the detail of the different regions of Russia from cities, down to subways, people climbing mountains, fire engines racing to put out fires and military installtions, including cut out views of buildings and ships.
They had trains and vehicles running continously. while watching they had the whole area starting in the far east go to night time and you watched as building lights came on.
They have a audio guide, but we didn't take it, my wife is fluent in Russian and translated as required.
They also had made models of various cruise ships in great detail, we had travel on one of them and found that interesting.
As we left we saw through a glass wall the people working making building and lighting fixtures for futrure setups. While not modeler, I found this a great visit.

There was also a cafe and toilet facilities that were excellent

“Good place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 July 2014 via mobile

I've been there in summer 2014, and I was totally stunned by the size of the attraction. They filled a whole floor with a miniature world of all the nice places in Russia! From Moscow to Wladiwostok, you can find a lot of nice small places. 400 rub might be a little but to much money, but I enjoyed it anyway.

“Splendid idea! Perfectly implemented!”

A must-see for the whole family! Located in a ghastly region, accessible only by car, but worth the trouble.
