We did not go on it

My only visit to the Lenin Nuclear Icebreaker was to go around it on a boat when the Soviet Union was still in place!

A visit to Lenin Icebreaker is generally on cards for all visitors to Murmansk. We visited the vessel on a Saturday. Surprisingly, considering the cold weather and all that, the tour soon filled up. Please note that only 20 people are allowed on a tour at a time. If it gets filled up , you join the next tour after... More

Took the first tour in the morning. The icebreaker has a fascinating history and it's a joy to tour its interior. We took a tour in Russian which was, due to many families with children, more oriented towards younger than mature audience, but still managed to get lots of useful information.

The car was driving in the harbor road and I saw the ice-breaking ship, found the table which was written, visit   only after login. But great fortune There was a lady who asked, what... More

I loved our tour on the Lenin icebreaker as it was very educational and I learned about how icebreakers worked. Having worked on cruiseships this woke up some memories of the life onboard a sea vessel.

Brief advice: go there six months later. Be sure you are into history of technology and engineering before you visit. You will learn about how a nuclear icebreaker works, see where it started fifty years ago, there are some games for kids you get to play. See how did sailors live, eat. At the december of 2013 the icebreaker is... More
