For first travellers to Murmansk its a Must to visit her. take a guided tour and get an all around walk in an nuclear icebreaker with long and intressting history, many pictures and films and also a interactic multimedia questionary for kids.

Very interesting. But by God, bring a Geiger counter. My Rolex actually glowed on this vessel. But interesting and very Soviet. Make sure to have your radiation measured afterwards.

Well, how many nuclear ships are out there that one can get this close/climb on? In my view, if you are in Murmansk, definitely a must see, just a 10min walk from the train station (take the long overpass). Unfortunately I could not get in, as visits are at certain times and you may need to get there early to... More

If you ever come to Murmansk, visit this Museum. It was the first nuclear ice breaker in the world and has long history. Our guide was speaking english and explained things very well.

With this excursion you will not only be on the bridge, but you will also visit the Captains cabin, crew cabins, galley, control rooms for communication, turbines, engines and the reactor room. It's thrilling but absolute safe.

In drab Murmansk, the world's first nuclear ice-breaker is a interesting and fun attraction. A beautiful ship that has been nicely preserved. Terrific docent (with exhibits) and ability to see crews' quarters, the bridge, the nuclear reactor room (through a viewing window ) turbine power plant. They have a very small but nice gift shop; they only take rubles. Has... More

A great many Russians have attached love padlocks along the railings which face the largest braveheart of them all, the first atomic icebreaker - the Lenin. From what we were allowed to see, the Russians certainly took care of their officers and men aboard this ship and the polished wood in the officers' quarters is priceless, even down to the... More

A relic of the powerful Soviet atomic fleet, this large ice-breaker is near the Murmansk port. There is not much to see around apart from the ship, but it is worth seeing anyway.

The inside is like a 1930's luxury liner with it's wooden panelled walls and enormous dining room for the officers. But don't be fooled, this is a very serious ship that worked on the North East Seaway for over 20 years. You have a guided tour and not only get to see the beautiful living space but also the nuclear... More

This icebreaker is an old treasure that deserves the money and time spent on its preservation, you can feel the history seeping out of each area. It´s an interesting, informative, educational tour albeit in Russian when I went last month, but is well worth the cheap entrance. Compared to the exhorbitant rates to tour the Brittania royal yacht in Edinbugh... More
