So i thought the entry price was a bit steep for what you got but I still enjoyed it and by western standards it isn't expensive to visit. I liked seeing all the rocks and jewelry and stuff. Having seen some of the photos here they have to change the displays fairly often as I didn't recognize a lot of them but some I definitely did and the photos of the location showed it was the same place so I think they change it up. Some of the jewelry was amazing and some of it was ugly as all get out but it was all interesting. But only if you like geology, rocks and jewelry, of course. Very little English. You will be lucky to get what kind of rock it is out of the signage.

The museum has some very nice pieces in the exposition. Especially, the old exhibition pieces are worthwhile a visit. The museum personal on the ground floor is quite helpful in guiding the visitors. However, the upper floor is guarded by personal that had problems when kids come even close to glass showcases. So, the visit turned into an uncomfortable one. Totally unacceptable behavior! In summary: don’t go here but save you time when being with kids.

Beautiful masterpieces of stone-carvings fill most of this museum. The craftsmanship comes from expert carvings who developed their skills in the Ural mountains. Displays include pieces of mineralogical exhibits with many being of precious stones, beautiful carved-stone masterpieces and pieces of stone jewellery. The vast majority of the raw stones which were carved came from the Ural mountains area which contains many rich deposits of precious stones.

This was a surprisingly amazing museum and everything was explained in English. The history of this trade is fascinating and started early here. The pieces are just amazing, the animals, the figurines and especcially the flowers of stone.
