Do you miss classes in physics you had at school? Or do you want your children to get interested in the subject? Then there is a museum you should definitely visit.
Basic laws of physics are demonstrated in a museum called Experimentarium in Moscow. It is designed for children. However, 60% of parents who accompany their children can’t explain the physical phenomena represented in the museum. It’s sad as elementary laws of physics must be known by anybody.
