The museum is good but there's a lot of things you have to pay extra for an also a lot of the signs are only in Russian. it is a nice way to spend the time if it's raining though.

Interesting permanent exhibition centered in the evolution of the species. Quite old-fashioned. A good place to take the kids.

A natural History museum in Moscow with lots to see and based on Darwin's theory. Recently enjoyed a school visit where pupils took part in a Quest activity. Also worth a visit if not with school children.
