The Museum of Paleontology has beautiful public exhibits - 5000 sq.m., largely unheard of outside of Moscow as one of the world largest natural-science museums.

The First Hall is rather introductory one and tells about the paleontology as a science. The exposition of the Second Hall tells about Precambrian and early Paleozoic and represents the first forms of life that appeared on Earth, invertebrate species and their evolution. The Forth Hall is dedicated to late Paleozoic and the beginning of the Age of Reptiles. The Fifth Hall is especially popular with the visitors because it tells about dinosaurs and treasures many skeletons of these extinct creatures. In the last Six Hall various mammals and the unique fauna of the Age of Mammals are represented.
