Museum of Woodland
« on: February 07, 2010, 07:59:36 AM »
The [i]Federal Forestry Service [/i] founded the museum in 1999 to mark the department's 200th anniversary, and the overriding atmosphere is of actually being in the forest. Painted panels, warm lighting, stuffed animals and recorded birdsong create a grove inside the main room where school children perch on log stools to listen to the guides. [i]Displays illustrate Russia's most widespread trees and wooden architecture[/i].
The museum is [u]open 11 am-5 pm[/u], Wednesday to Sunday and costs [u]30 roubles[/u]($1).

Turn right out of Paveletskaya metro onto Novokuznetskaya Ulitsa. At the brick old believers' church of the Intercession, turn left to find the [b]Museum of Woodland [/b] in a well-restored early 19th century mansion.

If you like nature,
if you would like to know more about Russian trees,
you will like to visit this museum.
