Russia is the largest country in the world. It takes a lifetime to explore the whole territory. In St Petersburg there is a highly interesting museum where you can explore Russia within an hour. Interactive museum “Grand Model of Russia” is the elaborate, precise but also very funny model of our vast country which has been fit into a hall of just 800 sq. meters.
This is the far cry from the average local history museum. This is the perfect combination of history, geography, a little bit of a show and a lot of fun for visitors from all over the world. Little men populating the Model go about their own daily business without paying much attention to the visitors. Small cars and trains run back and forth across the country.
Houses are being built, crops are being planted, and cargos are being unloaded. This entire little world is run by the know-how mechanisms which are the pride of the museum team. The model of Russia is not static either: day changes the night every few minutes, all things are making their respective sounds.
There are a few pads where visitors can start movement by pressing the button. The Grand Model of Russia is a great choice for the family visit. How to get there and ticket prices you can find below.
