This place is great. I have been to this museum 4 times in the past 3 years and I learn something new every time I go. It is very interesting to hear different points of view and facts from different tour guides. Usually I only get 2-3 hours, which is definitely not enough if you want to walk thru an... More

A visit to the somewhat grim "National Museum of the Great Patriotic War 1941-1945" (It's actual name) is well kind of grim. One must bear the snow and ice on all approaches to enter. It is put together fairly well and even has some English cards to help we outsiders navigate the halls.

Very interesting place to visit to see the old red army hardware. If you are into warfare etc and this type of interest you will find it interesting. We were in the area so had a look around. I must say the statues around here and Kiev are something special.

It was interesting with a number of artillery pieces from a bygone era. A firm reminder that war really happens and we should not forget.

Very impressive park and interesting to know more about the east as a westerner however please include much more information in English as this would have improved the overall experience.

Together with the Paris, Brussels and London War Museum, the most interesting War Museum I have ever visited. Especially the last Hall, the capture of Berlin,then the capitol of the Third Reich, is very impressive.

Most people do not realize how important WWII is still in the minds of Ukrainians. For them, it was yesterday with many memories of the people about how many people were killed during the war. Much of the present conflict in Ukraine is based on what happened from WWII. So, if you want to see how WWII was fought in... More

The museum really tries, and succeeds, to create a feeling of how it was during the war. The last room is dedicated to the memory of the war and had a strong impact on me. If you go, do climb the statue and get the wonderful view over Kiev. It costs a little but is well worth it.
