At the entrance give a tablet with information, partly on the Russian, with videos of the work of some exhibits. I can't call it mandatory to visit if it's warm outside.
Do NOT miss this complete gem of a museum! It's small but packs in some many interesting items. Well worth the entrance fee.
This place was small but awesome. You'll see some crazy time pieces from history. Well worth the admission price.
