Monday is usually the "closed day" of museums.
I checked some official sites of Ekaterinburg museums: Regional museum is closed on Mondays and Tuesdays (open other days from 11am to 6 pm), Geological museums is closed on Saturdays and Sundays and open on working days from 11am to 5 pm (museums is a part of the Ural Mining University). And the info about Fine Arts museum is in the previous post
