Yaroslavl, Rostov Veliky, Ivanovo, Sergiev Posad, Pereslavl-Zalessky, Suzdal, Vladimir and Kostroma, Rybinsk, Shuya, Palekh, Uglich, Romanov-Borisoglebsk – the team of the Association of Private Museums managed to travel through these thirteen cities of Russia in one hour, and all thanks to the “Golden Ring” Show Museum.
The “Golden Ring” Show Museum is a unique interactive space in the very centre of Yaroslavl, created by 147 professionals. 3D artists, engineers and sound engineers had been working hard to convey the life of cities, their sound and atmosphere for 2 years, and they finally succeeded.
The show-museum is inhabited by an incredible number of characters, each of whom deals their usual business. Someone is fixing a bicycle in the garage, someone is in a hurry to catch a train, someone is shooting a movie, and someone is just walking around the city, and in such a way life in the museum does not stop for a minute.
The exhibition includes the latest visual and sound solutions. Every ten minutes in an unusual exhibit of the day gives way to night. Lights are turned on in the windows of houses, the light of lanterns and car headlights fills the streets, fireworks explode in the sky, and bright multi-colored projections appear on the walls of buildings.
“The museum does not leave anyone indifferent, people acquire extremely positive emotions, or rather, a whole storm of emotions. They are very interested to see how life is organized on a scale of 1:87. That’s why they come here. We conduct surveys to assess the level of mood after visiting the museum. It is 9.6 points on a ten-point scale. The approval level for the ticket price is also highly positive. Despite the fact that it is higher than the average value, 85% of visitors believe that the price corresponds to the impressions received,” says Roman Begunov, director of the museum.
The museum receives 9-10 thousand visitors every month. People come here with small children and people with disabilities. The museum has an equipped bathroom for disabled citizens, a mother and child room.
On average, a visit to the museum takes from 40 minutes to 1.5 hours, but you can stay here even until its closing!
