There is a huge amount to see here in various halls showing war memorabilia through the years. And some very amazing equipment to see outside! There is also a small cafe with good prices inside. I'm not sure why but on the day of my visit it was free to enter. The only reason for 4 stars is the extreme... More

If you are a fan of military history or even if you are not, this is the place to go. A lot of history of WWI and WW2. You need at least 2 hours to go through all the sections. It was clean and well maintained. You will find some school tours with kids 5-10 year old in a group.... More

If you are an army enthusiast this is a must see! The ticket fee is next to nothing. It's close to the metro station. You can explore the museum for 2 hours at least.In the museum complex, there is a very nice army-themed restaurant, in case you get hungry. There's also a souvenir shop. Museum also has an exhibiton outside.

A worthwhile visit to this museum not far off the metro line. There is little by way of english descriptions but the display on the early Russian military had its artefacts speak a universal language. Where it drops off for me is the displays on the defence of Leningrad and Stalingrad they provoked more learning of the tactics used and... More

With so many great things to see in Moscow, I was recommended this place by a friend originally from Leningrad. I would never have seen it this far down the list on TA, and I am so glad my friend tipped me off. It's easy to get to, just get off the metro at Dostoyevskaya. The museum is about 200... More

So, I went here knowing that there would be no information in English (if you have a iPhone, bring Word Lens). The good first: * Information and artifacts related to WW2/Great Patriotic War (piles of Iron Crosses and parts of the Reichstag) are very well done, but still in a dignified way * U2 plane (or pile of plane parts)...

We were very impressed with this museum, despite the major drawback of there being almost no information available in English, except for a single-page floor plan and outline of exhibits. We visited on a Sunday and it was free, although there is a ticket window at the entrance. Rooms 2 to 8 were closed, and there was no sign of... More
