Which museums in Yaroslavl are worth visiting? The Einstein Museum of Science and Entertainment in Yaroslavl has a lot to give because it is the Russian interactive museum! The museum comes with an unusual motto “the highest level of scientific research play”, which, opened in October 2013 as a traditional museum, where exhibits are carefully preserved by visitors and hidden behind the glass windows of exhibition stands. Not only is it possible, but you need to touch, turn, and twist any mechanism, trying to understand how they work.

You will see what is Foucault’s pendulum, Newton’s pendulum and Maxwell’s pendulum which resembles Tesla’s lamp with the dynamic lightning. In the example shown at the beginning the action of the arches of the folding bridge, there are three plates, rolling down on different surfaces, illustrating a mechanical phenomenon, like friction. With the help of the weights and rods it is possible to explain clearly what affects the density. For an understanding of the principles of cinema there is a special rotating drum: the image inside the horses, which is reflected in the mirrors, creating a moving image. In total, the museum has more than 100 objects on display in eight rooms, the exhibition is constantly supplemented and updated. This museum is unique among other museums in Yaroslavl.
