Museum of entertaining science "Experimentarium"

Irkutsk, Russia

Here you will learn how Baikal winds are born, you will be offered to stand on an incandescent bulb and then to find a way out of a mirror maze. Or to find out your weight on Mars. Or to let steam rings out of an ingenious structure, based on a plastic bucket.

The Irkutsk Museum of entertaining science is one of the largest in Russia, and you could spend hours here. It includes a planetarium and two expo spaces with three hundred interactive tools that demonstrate the laws of physics. The exhibits were designed and created by local craftsmen, and all this fun stuff can be held in your hands, thrown to the ceiling and investigated under different lighting conditions. The difference between a three-year-old and a thirty-year-old disappears in this setting with the first “I wonder what is puffing in the corner over there?”

Young (and not so young) artists will be given a chance to draw with some magnetic sawdust, musicians will be able to play on a trubofon, a plastic tube structure reminiscent of a pipe organ, and climbers will have a chance to lift themselves up above the ground with the help of an ingenious construction made of ropes and blocks. It is a good idea to spend half an hour here to experience the Einstein relativity of time firsthand.
An entrance ticket for a child costs 340 rubles. An adult ticket costs 380 rubles.
