Durov Animal Theatre information
Dedushka Durov (Grandpa Durov) founded this zany theatre for kids as a humane alternative to the horrible treatment of animals he saw at the circus. His shows feature mostly domestic animals, including cats and dogs, farm animals and the occasional bear.
His most popular show is Railway for Mice. Guided tours of the museum give kids a closer look at the railway. Take tram 7 from Prospekt Mira metro station, or walk 1.5km west on ul Durova.
