This museum is located at the intersection of Leninskaya and Sovetskaya Streets. This is a 20 minute walk from the center of town, and approx. 1.5 kilometers. It is probably best reached by walking, as although there are many buses that pass this location, there...More

Small interesting local museum on the culture and wildlife of Kamchatka. Everything is in Cyrillic and you must take a translator to be able to understand everything.

We visited the museum on a half day tour from the cruse ship. Well worth a look around Petropavlosk and the museum gave you a good bit of history about how the town was established

Well worth a visit when in Petropavlovsk. It covers the history of this beautiful place . It's small but interesting. The only minus is that they do not speak English very well.
