The model presents the model of everyday life in Russia. Everyday situations demonstrate different types of human activity. Visitors have the opportunity to set things in motion on the model with interactive buttons.

The movement of cars as close as possible to reality: cars and buses stop at traffic lights and stops, blink signal lights, change traffic speeds. Trains are really wonderful. To optimize the railway traffic on the layout at several levels stacked more than 2500 meters of rails. The total number of units — more than 2,700, of which 250 locomotives and 10 special cleaning trains.
