There is also a zone for the progress of agricultural machinery, beginning with the ketmen, ending with modern tractors Claas, which are produced by a joint Uzbek-German enterprise.

Interactive workshop of the Polytechnic Museum in Tashkent
Here is a delightful room for physics. This is no longer a museum, but a real amusement park, where adults can return to childhood, and children become acquainted with the laws of physics in a playful form. Thanks to Uzbek polytechnical museum you can learn about the action of an electric current, ride a bicycle producing electric energy, and also see the real coil of Tesla. However, perhaps the most interesting part of this workshop is the theme of optical illusions. First you are able to pass a small mirror maze, then entertain with the crooked mirrors, and then go into Ames's room - a room of a special form where for an outside observer you can become a giant or a dwarf.
The smallest visitors of the Uzbek polytechnic museum will be able to frolic on the playground - "swim" in colored balls, ride cars and motorcycles, climb the wall, feel like climbers, crawl, jump or just watch developing cartoons.
Within Uzbek tour packages visiting the Polytechnic Museum in Tashkent is a great occasion to have a fun day, and at the same time to get much joy and a lot of knowledge.
