Fantastic museum with several very different exhibitions, amongst them one being about the civic history of the Finnish period of Wyborg and the ecological make up of the region. Small and sweet and I would highly recommend!
Worth enough to visit ! The museum tell us a lot about the history of Vyborg. Most of discriptions are written in Russian but unexpectedly there are some English,also! +At the end of October, some parts of the castle were under construction so I couldn't see the whole Tips: They offer a special discount for Russian student card holders! And I'm not sure about international student ID card but at least we can try it :)
The museum itself was nice with old findings and Fnnish section was intetesting. Additionally, the most special thing for me was how nice behaving the wardrobe personel was for me . I give them huge thanks through this web page due to their actions with my mobile phone: I got lost my phone and could not find it, so I closed the connection. However, the wardrobe personel found it when I was already 1 kilometre away from the museum. The personel opened the phone and sent a what's up message about lost phone to my wife in Finland (what'up was already open becauce I was just used it with my wife). After that my wife called to my another phone and told that my lost phone had been found. Then I went back to museum and the personnel gave me my lost phone. Thank them very much! That's Vyborg!
A great place to visit and learn about history, nature and customs of Vyborg. If you are lucky enough, you might attend a special event. They are held here regularly.
The main attraction is the fluffy orange cat that "works" there.
