The uniqueness of this museum lies not only in the content of its exhibition, but also in its form. It was based on the principles of the global trend of enriching experiences for visitors through interactivity, advances in high technology and modern principles of education. So when visiting the museum, you will be able to try, for example, a sand relief model with augmented reality.

There Is No Sand Like Sand...

Every visitor to the museum can become a landscape creator for a while, try to create a mountain or, conversely, the sea. In essence, it is a simple "box" with very fine sand, which, based on surface sensing, allows a computer program to draw not only contour lines, but also altitude using hyposmetry (surface coloring). You can also make a rain cloud over the landscape and then monitor the behavior of water in the ground.
