The creators of this museum really splashed out for the latest and greatest, and it shows. The introductory presentation takes you through the highlights of the Old Testament, complete with 3-D effects, moving seats, wind and sprinkles of rain, and locusts (ok, not real locusts). It is almost entirely over the top, and yet charming. The rest of the museum focuses on the basics of Judaism/Jewish life as well as the history of Jews in Russia. There is a deeply moving film/exhibition about the experience of Jews in the former Soviet Union in WWII. A lot is in Russian, but there is certainly enough in English to make the museum worthwhile for non-Russian speakers. The space itself is beautiful and well-laid out. Using Yandex or Google maps will get you there easily.
