Pleasant impression of this permafrost! I've never been in places like this! 15 degree every time - both in summer and winter. It is said that in winter people are going inside this frozen kingdom to get warmer))) Fantastic!

This place has a good collection of mammoth remains and pieces of information that describe the history of this region and mammoths in the region. The scientist in the museum was extremely knowledgeable. Our tour guide translated everything from Russian to English.

Treasury of The Republic of Sakha (Yakutia) Exhibition

Reviewed By Kathleen M - Fribourg, Switzerland

You buy your ticket at a (not always open) ticket office on the ground floor of a glassed-in shopping centre. Then you climb up two flights of stairs and gain entry into a wonderland of showcases crammed with silver, gold, platinum, ornate armour, walruss and mammoth ivory carvings. There are more precious stones than you've ever seen outside a jewellery trade fair. Diamonds take pride of place in this diamond-producing republic. Our friendly English-speaking guide Lyuba was full of interesting information about the exhibits and did her best to extend the 45-minute maximum visit time on our behalf. No photography is permitted and and there is - understandably - very strict security. The woman at the ticket desk sells high quality brochures on the various categories of exhibits as well as postcards, magnets and the like. You need to buy these when you purchase your tickets, or else return another day to do so since the ticket desk will probably be closed by the time your actual visit ends.

National Art Museum of The Republic of Sakha (Yakutia)

Reviewed By Kathleen M - Fribourg, Switzerland

If you know something about the subjects of the portraits, the paintings naturally become more interesting. We specially liked the colourful Dymkovo folk art figurines in two of the showcases. When we visited, one room on the second floor featured six paintings that had been digitized in some way. When you held the museum's 'planchette' (a sort of tablet computer) in front of those paintings indicated with a special blue-trimmed sign you saw the items from the paintings moving. Northern lights, for example, moved across the night sky as you held the screen in front of the painting.

Потрясающая игра, отличные постановки, всегда только положительные впечатления!!! Была практически на всех постановках и каждый раз с нетерпением жду премьеры. Очень радует разнообразный репертуар: можно и поплакать, и посмеяться, и подумать... Огромное спасибо режиссёру и актерам театра за их талант, отсутствие кривляния, пошлости, наигранности и желания понравится. Дальнейших творческих успехов, новых идей и вдохновения!

Museum of History of Studying of Permafrost

Reviewed By Katherine408 - Kirkby Stephen, United Kingdom

First don't confuse this with the Kingdom of Permafrost near Chochur Muran which some of these reviewers appear to have done. This is not where you have tunnels of ice sculptures - instead it is an academic institution which primarily seems to do research into engineering and feasability for new buildings on the permafrost. We went with a guide and descended deep into the permafrost. Interesting to see the crystal formations, see bits of mammoth etc and experience what it is like deep underground but any research they do here must be in laboratories above ground which unfortunately we didn't see as husband a physicist.

One of the most obvious sights of Yakutsk, you will encounter it as you walk around the town. Large pedestrian passages accentuated by greens, surrounded by buildings of bureaus and shopping centres, it makes for an interesting walk.

Reviewed By Tinde_K - Moscow, Russia

A short hike on the hill above the Museum of Permafrost and Chuchor Muran complex. The views are nice, it's a good idea to do if you're doing this remote part of Yakutsk as a whole day activity, otherwise don't waste your time.
