If the Ipad is taking over your kids’ life and you want to show them the big world out there in a fun and interesting way, Moscow can offer a range of places both to spark children’s curiosity and boost their intellect.
Museum of Optical Illusions
A whole range of optical illusions and adventures, including strolling along the deck of the legendary Titanic, playing with giant toys, being attacked by spiteful alligators, getting an award from the president. You name it!
Computer Evolution Gallery
Wanna go digital big time? Welcome to the Computer Evolution Gallery. Explore the history of information technologies and meet the ancestors of modern gadgets, like Tesla EAM-500 tape recorder of 1980, old processors, the grandfather of modern laptops from 1989, punch cards, Motorola pagers and much more. Who needs these art galleries or photo exhibitions anyway? Let’s play a Dendy game, like in the good old days!
In most museums, kids get bored and exhausted very soon. They hear “Don’t touch this!”, “Put this back before the guard can see you!” all the time. But not here — at Experimentarium children can become real scientists: participate in making experiments, solve puzzles and explore the basic laws of physics and chemistry.
Kids will be thrilled and adults – well, let’s face it, adults love cartoons too! You can learn the history of your favorites, draw your own cartoon story, or party with your most beloved characters.
Museum of Human Living Systems
It’s a place where kids are free to misbehave without any consequences. They are welcome to scream and shout, run and jump, throw balls into a dummy and do whatever they want to explore the way a human body works. Imagine turning into a turtle or a spider man, taking part in archeological diggings or watching your skeleton ride a bicycle! Sounds crazy, right? Your kids will love it!
