An unusual museum and at the same time a research center of the Western hemisphere. It is housed in a building built for the opening of the World Exhibition in 1893. The exhibits are shown in dynamics, many copies are made in full size. A small copy of the railway, which functions like a real one, and a puppet palace work for children.
