The Museum has many exhibits are well put together. There are the English translation on most exhibits. I also enjoy learning about details of development of Siberia. Definitely worth a visit if you want to know more about the history of Russia.

A wonderful place to learn a lot about history of Novosibirsk and also to see some modern exhibitions. It's possible to book guided tours. I loved the "Ancient Siberia" exhibition.
