A look at Tobolsk's history in a building occupying 3 floors. We foreigners pay more for entry than locals, costing 600 roubles for the entire exhibition

All sorts of local and national history are one display here. Some dual language signs on the exhibits. Most Americans will not know that Tobolsk was where Nicholas II asked to be exiled in 1917, but this is displayed in the museum. Proably the best city museum in my trans-Russia train trip

Very interesting museum collections. The first big perk is the lovely viewpoint from the back of the building. Then you enter and there are many museum collections - on the history of Tobolsk, on Tsar Nicholas II. and his family, who were incarcerated in that very building for a time. I enjoyed the carved statuettes from mammoth tusk, they were adorable.

We curiously opened the doors. Greeted by a lovely woman speaking only Russian we looked confused. She lead us around and should us our options patiently. We took a self-guided tour. At intervals a guide would step in to show us how the interactive computer system worked. We learned so much about the history of the area and the culture. On top of all that we were given a complimentary pass to other areas of the museum.
