The only negative is that the exhibits could be better organised chronologically, but besides that, the museum covers most of the history of the city with interesting exhibits ranging from documents to costumes to bells and mock interors. Definitely needs to be visited to understand...More
Lovely museum with fantastic well humoured staff in particular when our guide set off alarms on a regular basis.
Strongly recommend Google translate to navigate around the exhibits (translates text in real time on a smartphone and it is free - thank you Google).
Tells you quite a bit about the history of Perm, with a few really weird exhibits, including a telegraph operated with piano keys and a Soviet poster of the Beatles being berated by a large bully boy (Kruschev?).
