The big world in miniatureIn the Museum of Nature of the Kronotsky Reserve, you can see the Kronotsky Reserve in miniature. Guests go on a virtual trip to the Valley of Geysers and the caldera of the Uzon volcano, to the Kronotskoye and Kurilskoye lakes. Spherical panoramas of world famous landmarks can be controlled by touching the touch screen.
Entering the Museum, visitors are immersed in the world of wildlife. They seem to find themselves in the forest, tundra, on the seashore, thermal sites, at the foot of a volcano or on a spawning river. Artists accurately depicted the protected Kamchatka – its natural zones, plants and animals. The figures of animals, birds, and fish are made in full size. The Museum is interactive – all exhibits can be touched or picked up. For younger guests, there are also tasks – to put flower puzzles, guess animals by footprints, determine the age of trees by rings on the cuts, etc..
At the end of the tour, visitors are invited to watch videos about volcanoes, geysers, and the inhabitants of protected areas. Instead of chairs in the makeshift cinema hall, comfortable Ottomans made in the form of large stones.
