I’ve never heard of it before. Therefore it was very interesting to see it.
As soon as you enter the door of the museum, you get into world of cats. You’ll know many interesting facts about cats, their history, about how they appeared in Russia and St. Petersburg Hermitage… For example, do you know that cat was a luxury?
It hints about Pushkin’s poem “Ruslan and Ludmila”:
“On seashore far a green oak towers,
And to it with a gold chain bound,
A learned cat whiles away the hours
By walking slowly round and round.”
Children would enjoy an interactive program here.
Walking further through the corridor, you’ll see “cat” fence, remember proverbs with cats, learn about valerian, catmint, and other meanings of word «кошка» (cat).
There are cat horoscope and cat constellation in the background.
This museum is small, yet very cosy. I liked it.
Children would definitely like it.
