Visit the Soviet Car Museum. To visit the house where Lenin lived during his exile to Siberia.. Visit the hall of antiquity in Sayanogorsk Local History Museum.

Museums of Minusinsk, Shushensky and Sayanogorsk

Spend the weekend with pleasure and get acquainted with the most interesting museum expositions of Minusinsk, Sayanogorsk and Shushensky. The first stop on the way will be a private museum, where cars, motorcycles, bicycles and other equipment of the USSR times are collected, then we'll head towards the museum-reserve "Shushenskoye", where we'll see the exposition devoted to Lenin's exile to Siberia, and in Sayanogorsk we'll touch the ancient times, looking at the artifacts found at the archaeological site. I recommend to go on a trip on Saturday, because on Sundays the museum "Automobiles and Motor vehicles of the USSR" does not accept visitors, and the local history museum Sayanogorsk closes an hour earlier.
