Akademgorodok Sight-Seeing Tour by car (4 hours)

A half - day tour to the scientific city Akademgorodok (30km from Novosibirsk) – the only scientific city in the world, where all the branches of sciences are presented.

Begin your excursion in one of Russia’s only scientific towns, where all the divisions of Russian science are located. During your visit, you will discover more about the town’s history as you walk through the House of Scientist and browse through the collection of Russian masterpieces. 

The historic town was founded in the 1950s under the ‘Academy of Sciences’ division of the USSR, and Akademgorodok was the residence to over 60,000 scientist during a period of economic uncertainty. While your tour guide recounts the history of the historic town, you will have the opportunity to visit one of two museums of your choice, Geology Museum at Geology Research Institute and the Open-Air Train Museum (a collection of the old Trans-Siberian trains). 

The excursion concludes shortly after you have walked along the embankment of the Ob reservoir – an artificial sea, and then your guide will lead you back to the centre of the city, where you can spend the rest of your day experiencing the vibrant city of Novosibirsk.
