Owner description: Ekaterinburg History Museum pays special attention to urban culture and everyday life of the city in the XVIII-XXI centuries. Private cases and the most ordinary objects like a smoking pipe, a fan, a photographic frame or a button of an old dress give the exhibitions a non-heroic, domestic dimension. However, they reveal history of the city, capturing the spirit and sense of the past epochs. A unique set of exhibits was supported by multimedia installation, interactive panels and spectacular audio-visual objects depicting the history of Ekaterinburg in the XVIII-XXI centuries as well as prehistory of the place (archaeology).

“A complete and utter waste of time and money”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 June 2012

A small museum which has little to offer. I paid 80 rubles and was very disappointed with the exhibitis. After I left, I could understand why I was the ONLY visitor in the entire museum. There are a lot of museums in the city, I would suggest a pass on this one.
