What an amazing museum/painting. Nothing like it! You climb the stairs and end up surrounded by the battle. Never experienced anything like it before, truly unique. The gardens then beckoned and the waterfront with the gun emplacements. It is like re-living the story and being immersed in history. You cannot help but marvel at the work that has gone into...

We've seen several diaramas, historical tapestries and countless paintings, but this is all three in one. All of the Trip Advisor reviews are spot-on and it's not to be missed.

Painted between 1902 and 1904 this massive, detailed and lifelike work depicts the siege on Sevastopol by the French and British on the Malakhov Battery June 6, 1855 as viewed behind the Russian lines. There are many actual items in the foreground that blend into the painting as you look into the distance. It is difficult to discern where the... More

Couldn't believe my eyes when we got to the top of the stairs. It has been done so well.The combination of props in the foreground blending into the 3D painting is absolutely incredible. You can well imagine being there. Very very enjoyable!

Our cruise of the Black Sea included a trip to Sevastopol and a visit to the panorama museum depicting the siege of Sevastopol and the battle of Malakhov Hill in the Crimean War. It was unlike anything that we had ever seen before. it was so lifelike that you felt the soldiers could walk off the field and into the... More

This was part of a shore excursion on a Black Sea cruise, and it was incredible. Go upstairs and you get an incredible panoramic overview. Downstairs look through the windows and it is all so real at ground level. This was the most memorable experience in a 12 day Black Sea cruise and included in the cost, but I believe... More

This is a sight that should not be missed. It is a reenactment of the Crimean War. Part of it has manikins dressed in costume and the farther scenes are actually painted on the walls which go completely around you and up to the top. It's impossible to see where the manikins stop and the paintings begin. To say it... More

This area is steeped in history and this is a great way to study some of it. We visited as a part of an organised tour, so cannot advise on fees. The siege of Sevastopol was a crucial part of the Crimean War. The diarama or panorama depicts the major episodes of the Malakhov Kurgan battlefield, involving 5000 sq ft... More

Gives you a real feeling for the time and history. So well done. There are pay toilets. Don't expect anything more than porcelain slits.

If you ever get to Sevastopol in the Ukraine this is a must to go and visit, it is an unbelievable work of art depicting history and really brings to life the battle scene as if you could be there yourself. They say the cleaners have a name for every face in the painting though I doubt that is true.... More
