The Museum on the roof Was Reopened

“The Museum on the roof” is reopened in the State Historical Museum of Southern Urals after a long renovation. This is not just one of the viewing areas of the city - it is both a sightseeing tour of Chelyabinsk, and insight into its history. There are plates with pictures of buildings, bridges and streets and the residents of Chelyabinsk, made at the beginning of the XX century on the roof of the east tower of the museum.

      The visitors may look first at the pictures and then compare how the appearance of the city changed for a hundred years. The whole center of Chelyabinsk is clearly visible from the top: the old streets and modern avenues, theaters, rooftops merchant mansions and churches domes.
