Two long tunnels in the permafrost with lots of lovely ice sculptures. Children would love it and adults also find it very interesting

Nice and interesting! No doubt: Go there! The real mammut and the ice sculptures (and the ice slide) are really nice. The guys there did a great job!

This museum is built into the side of a hill and is frozen year around by the natural permafrost. Beautiful ice scuptures throughout reflect Yakutian nature and culture.

well, I've been all alone, no guide, no people around, just ice and all those ice sculptures and ancient bones... one moment it's a bit scary, specially with all Yakut Sacred Music and suddenly "zombie mammouth"... intent to be more time over there but it was pretty cold, cause it was around +30C outside, so the temperature difference was substantial (-8C in the cave)

This place is definitely worth visiting while exploring Yakutsk. The entrance fee is 500 RUB, and taking a camera in costs an extra 200 RUB. It is right next to the Chochur Muran ethnic village/restaurant. I was really fascinated by all the ice sculptures in the former mine which is covered in icicles in the permafrost. The temperature was only -8°C, and my Dad and I were provided with a thin silver coat that kept us really warm. The entire place was like a palace and had many grand sculptures of mythical creatures, the Orto Doydu tree etc. You can sit on the ice thrones and take pictures too. On the left side door when you enter, there is a mammoth head in the room, which is definitely worth checking out even though the room is really smelly, smelling of rotting flesh. There also is a whole mammoth standing in the permafrost mine. I also really liked a sculpture of an ice fish eating real frozen salmon fish. After all, it is a must-see coming to Yakutsk.
