Cute little museum with fun and informative exhibits about the Lake. There's also a small aquarium with two of the famous seals. Their tank is a bit sad - I thought about diving in to cheer them up a bit. Gardens and cableway are near...More

Nice place! No issues that we don't speak russian. Even the dive simultation was done to us in English. I would hope the seals would have more space and option to get fresh air.

We went to this museum twice during our vacation because of the cute Baykal seals we saw! They are so cute! We didn't get an excursion but walked through this museum. Aquarium is the best place there!

Gave us a good understanding of the ecology and history of Lake Baikal. Unfortunate for us that the area with microscopes to look at lake life was fully occupied by an organized group so we didn't get the chance to experience this part of the...More

Toured the museum, saw the seals, worth going in to see the history of the lake and the artifacts. There is a seismograph that indicates that there is activity all the time.

We visited the museum with our five year old. We were all excited about the virtual submarine tour, liked the exhibits (even though they are in Russian only we were able to understand enough). To see the freshwater seals and fish was another highlight. We're...More
