This is one of the most original short museum visits in the world. Buy a ticket, join a group - the visit takes 30 minutes and for that time you are really transported to the centre of a Bastion under seige with a 360 degree panorama (yes, the name says it!) with all the visuals you can imagine. Excellent value... More

This was one of the most memorable things I have seen. It is amazing in detail and given the chance I would have spent much more time in the panorama. Unfortunately we were on a cruise trip so time was limited. It is the sort of place you could spend time looking at again and again.

It was a boiling hot day & I didn't want to go into a "stuffy museum", so I stayed outside. After a while, I was too hot, so I decided to go inside...WOW, I am so glad that I did.. I have never been in a better descriptive museum than this.. So lifelike, so unlike a "normal museum".. . It... More

Now...this was the first time i actually saw a panorama of this scale. A sight to see and get mesmarised by the detail and beauty of it. It explains the siege if sevastopol in a story as it unfolds and one can actually imagine it happening in front of you.A master piece and wonderfull memory to carry with you.

Awesome exposition, but guide was very annoying. She forgot some dates, change names, but if you can read some information inside you will be happy. That's awesome place! I strongly recommend to visit this panorama. Nowadays it costs RUR 160 (adult), RUR 80 (kids).

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
