Museum

I am ashamed to say that in all the years I've lived in Russia, I have never been to a museum here!  Since my mother-in-law is here we thought we'd take her to one of the local museums.  We didn't even really see the contents of the museum because we had the boys with us and thought they'd be more interested in the underwater special exhibit.  At first I was a bit disappointed by the size of the exhibit, in reality it just seemed like a big pet store, but they did have some interesting fish and in reality it was just enough to keep the boy's attention.  had the exhibit been any bigger they would have gotten bored. 
Piranhas!

My favorite aquarium- Nemo, Nemo's dad, and Nemo's mommy!


Oops, I wasn't supposed to use flash!!!

This is after Nathan punched the glass.  We told him not to do 
it again and he said "I punched it because I don't like him."




Jon and I outside the museum.

Beautiful carvings on top of the museum.

Statue of Lenin and the boys acting like non-socialist children!
