It's a really well made museum. I was not expecting it will be that good. In front of it there are few IS tanks. Unfortunatelly, nearly everything is just in russian but luckilly you can have a guide.

This is what happens when two bullheaded leaders are willing to sacrifice their boys to the war gods rather than move forward with the conflict. Thank God for intervening with the coldest winter on record otherwise they would still be fighting. Praises to Russia for winning and sacrificing so heavily. This museum and panorama is amazing.

Visiting this monument is very overwhelming. Man can feel the atmosphere from those horrible period during WW2. Starting from the river bank you go up the huge stairs and you keep going up through a mausoleum until you end at the feet of the immense statue of 91 meters high;"The motherland calls". It was designed by sculptor Yevgeny Vuchetich and... More

While the dioramas are excellent, the museum is otherwise a bit of a non-event. Don't bother to buy a ticket to take photos unless you want to photograph the dioramas, because there's otherwise not much of real interest here (Paulus's last headquarters under the Univermag building is much more interesting and free).

I learned an amazing deal about the second world war in Russia. I understand the Russian people better, due to learning about the hardships they had to endure. Very nicely depicted! Much bigger than i expected from the outside of the building. To be recommended by a Dutch traveler.

The museum is worth visiting if you like your history. It shows you how Volgograd was devastated in just 1 day. The 360 degree handpainting is a must to see.

The most amazing collection, with fascinating diorama and artefacts, but no English translation, which is a shame.

Amazing insight into the battle of the Volga .. So many lives lost in such deplorable winter conditions. No English, so a guide is invaluable. Diorama is very representative of such an unfortunate battle!
