The optical museum

St. Petersburg is home to an unusual museum, The Optical Museum. It is a place where visitors can learn about the most complex optical phenomena — light interference, diffraction and polarization — in an informative way with the help of various experiments. The museum gives each individual the chance to learn about the history of optics as well as about the achievements and prospects of scientific development in the field. Visitors can also try and work with optical elements at different stations and experiment with optical illusions. Here you can see a collection of optical glass and also check out schemes of holographic recordings on an example model. A trip to this museum presents the opportunity for guests to take part in a number of experiments that allow them to catch a glance into the mysterious and beautiful world of optics.
