The multi-level stone building of the museum, made in the Oriental style, combined with the river station. It is deployed to the Volga and harmoniously fit into the surrounding landscape. There is a magnificent palace - a unique gateway to the ancient city tourists can see while arriving by boat.
Directly from the station square you can get to the lower level of the museum. There is an exit to the territory of the Bolgar settlement from the upper terrace.
