About
On the 8th of June in 2012 the national show-museum «Grand Maket Rossiya» opened its doors hospitably for the wide auditory. By this time, thousands of citizens and quests of our city watched this unique exhibition. On the layout area of 800 square meters you will see the generalized images of cities and regions of Russia. Hundreds of moving trains and cars, sound and light effects add dynamics to the exposition and thousands of tiny figures make the genre scenes. Add the astonishing effect of day and night changing doesn`t leave a single visitors indifferent.

Amazing and outstanding attraction
Apr 2021
I'm a big model enthusiast and visited several such displays throughout Europe.
Until now, I regarded the Hamburg one being the best, but now, honestly the St. Pet's doesn't have a match - in one word it's amazing.
I see many people here focus this as a primary kids attraction which I can only partially agree. Kids observe this display as a toy, for me it's a piece of art.
The display is split into two huge sections (west and east Russia) in one enormous room, divided by the central passageway (marks the Europe-Asia border).
Every Russia major city with its landmarks, as well all regions are geographically displayed with millions of tiny objects. Hundreds of moving trains, cars, planes, working plants, mines, oil platforms, ski and sea resorts,....you name it, it's there. Every 15 min the room turns dark and display illuminated showing the night scene which is again amazing.
Unseen attention to details with high technology makes you stare at this in disbelief. Make sure to read the plaques showing the number of something and many interesting facts.
Grand Maket is not in the prime tourist area, but in a residential part of town with nothing else to see around, but worth every effort coming.

Misbehaving children
Feb 2021
The children and parents who like what they see and look at the good exhibis are disturbed by misbehaving children. That and this place is too big.

Big and noisy but worth it.
Sep 2020 • Friends
Be ready for noise, kids, sounds, people around and walking quite a lot. This exhibition gives nice idea about how big the country is. You can even feel how the atmosphere changes from east to west. I line the idea. Only disadvantage is that it is too crowded and too noisy. Will recommend to visit it at least once.

Fabulous

I’m so glad I came here. The model of Russia is incredible. All the little details are well thought out. A lot of time and effort has been put into this and for 540 rubles it is well worth the entrance fee!

A masterpiece of 21st century art.
Feb 2020
Had a very good time, absolutely jaw-dropping. Never seen something close to it. I recommend it to all age groups no matter of gender. It is spectacular to see, it revives the child in you. Well, structured museum and interactive. They allow photos and videos just keep in mind: do not touch the maket. Last but not least observation that the staff had a good level of English, they looked professional and had a smile on their face which I rarely came across in Russia. 10/10 as worth it experience.

Good place to understand the RF area and scale of the country. Lots of tiny things of daytoday life are made very masterly. You can see Far East , Siberia towns, Moscow, St.Petersburg and Kaliningrad and feel the time zones difference.

Great for kids and adults alike

Amazing details, lots of hidden gigs. Excellent organizational and helpful staff. Everything is translated to English. A bit away from touristic center, but 100% worth a visit - get yourself an Uber/Yandex taxi or use public transport.

Grand Maket is definitely worth a visit. Nice and life-like models of different parts of Russia. Even interactive parts.
Also cool with the day and night done with lighting which shows even more details of the models. Very enjoyable

Great Place for a Family Visit
Nov 2019
Fun and educational place for a family visit with 6-10 year olds (younger kids will get tired). Far from the centre of the city - consider taking a car.
The model ('maket') itself is huge, take about two hours to explore.
