The Orlov Museum of Paleontology (Палеонтологический музей им. Ю. А. Орлова) was founded by Paleontological Institute of Russian Academy of Sciencies in 1937 prior to the XVII session of the International Geological Congress. It is named after Yuri Alexandrovich Orlov (1893-1966). It contains public exhibits representing almost every type of fossil organism. Particularly well represented are dinosaurs from Mongolia, therapsids from the Perm region of Russia, and Precambrian fossils from Siberia.

    It's very interesting place for kids and adults. There are a lot of fossils, skeleton of mammoth and other the oldest animals! There is the mummy of little Mammoth his name is Dima. It is complete preserved one. There is a parking not far from the museum, on nearly street.
