Directions to The Palaeontological Museum
The Palaeontological Museum is located in South-West Moscow. Made of red brick with towers and a patio it looks like a real shrine of science.
There are six rooms that show the mysterious world of ancient plants and animals beginning with the most ancient and ending with the practically modern. Say 'Hello' to the mammoth skeleton - an icon of the Russian Paleontology. The most ancient organisms can be found at the Pre-Cambrian and the Palaeozoic rooms. The Mesozoic room represents threatening theropods and innocent diplodocuses. A cast of the Jurassic period Diplodocus found in the USA was presented to Emperor Nicholas II.
Although the exhibition has not been updated during more than 20 years and looks old-fashioned, this seems to be the very thing that helps to feel the mysterious atmosphere of Paleontology.
