The most fun museums of St. Petersburg

Optics Museum

In this museum, the world of light and color comes to life and begins to play with new colors. There are many interactive exhibits in the institution: you can “freeze” your shadows or paint with color, feel like Leonardo da Vinci, control particles in space and even fly a little. Almost all the exhibits here can and must be touched - only in this way can you move for a second to the future and touch the technologies that humanity will ever use. The complex science of optics within the walls of the museum becomes simple and truly fascinating.

Museum "House upside down"

Recently, the museum, in which all the exhibits are presented upside down, has updated the design of the premises. Now here is a space of eight locations: living room, kitchen, bathroom, toilet, children's rooms, a corridor and a bedroom.

In the apartment, the flip-flop offers to do the usual things: make breakfast, relax in the bedroom or wash things. Do not forget that the floor and ceiling are swapped, so this is not an easy task. The museum is especially good for unusual photo shoots - the pictures seem as if you are floating near the ceiling.

The city is inhabited by 1060 Lego men: horse knights in armor and beautiful princesses, pirates and living skeletons, characters of comics and movies.

Museum of Illusions

The space of the largest museum of illusions is divided into several thematic areas: artists-props tried their best and created a unique place where a glass labyrinth, a contact zoo, a giant room with huge furniture and much more appeared.

Let's single out the Giant's House, being in which you can sit on a huge chair or try on gigantic sneakers - in general, feel really small surrounded by giant objects.

Sigmund Freud Museum of Dreams

The exposition of an unusual museum is entirely devoted to dreams, the theories of the Austrian psychologist and, of course, his unlimited love of collecting antiquities. The Sigmund Freud Museum of Dreams can be called an interactive total installation. After all, here the visitors are surrounded by the illusion that they themselves form. All its visible and invisible walls, exposure surfaces, the floor, the ceiling are thought out, calculated and arranged so that they could be easily moved apart and the visual series continued based on their own experience, fantasy and desires.

Tours of the museum without an appointment are held on Tuesdays, Saturdays and Sundays at 12:30 and 15:00. In addition, various lectures are regularly held in the museum.

Museum of "Czar's fun"

This is not just a museum, but a real art project. Even the laureates of the Golden Mask were involved in the creation of the exhibition. Viewers will be able to see the hologram of Peter I, ride imperial bicycles, dive into the whirl of balls and rural trips, magnificent assemblies and endless feasts.

The design of the space very well combines the scientific approach and the game component. Here you can take a test, the results of which tell which of the Russian emperors the visitor likes the most. Old folios are lined up on special display cases; when opened, dynamic content is launched - sound, image and text synthesis appear.
