After visiting the Museum "Grand Model Russia", I felt as if you had visited the land of the Lilliputians, like Gulliver. It was very interesting. A lot of work and painstaking work has been invested in creating the layout. We walked around two circles, in the first we were filming and photographing everything, and in the second we were just looking at everything carefully. Everything is thought out to the smallest detail - lighting, soundtrack, traffic, roads, bridges, tunnels, relief. Every little man in business, lives his own life ... I advise everyone to visit this wonderful museum!

Very exciting and full of meaning in every section of the layout. I recommend taking binoculars for rent, studying in more detail what is happening. The audio guide did not really help, only general information, an extra waste of money. There is no organized movement along the layout, due to this there are many collisions, regulated movement in one direction would greatly simplify the movement of people.

This was a hidden gem. It's a must-visit if you are travelling with kids. The details of the entire model were fantastic. It's engrossing and you can actually identify structures. Much better than the "Mini Europe" in Brussels. The way the vehicles, weather and time of day are controlled is mind-boggling. The artwork is fantastic. It will take you back to your childhood.
