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!

Interesting museum, very well-arranged exhibits, including Zaitsev's sniper rifles or the gift to Volgograd from British empire to commemorate the battle of Staliningrad: a beautiful sword. Includes four 90° panoramas with battle scenes during different seasons of the year and one large 360° panorama. They write everywhere you can't enter the panorama upstairs without a guided tour, but that was... More

Excellent collection of artefacts and memorabilia relating to the famous battle on the Volga which raged non-stop from August 1942 until February 1943 and resulted in the ultimate deaths of perhaps 1.5 million men women and children on both sides of the Russo-German conflict. The estimate of 1.5 million is very elastic, the Russians (Soviets) admit to losing 478,000 troops... More

The artifacts in this museum are excellent, though there is little in the way of explanation in English. It is next to the destroyed old brick bakery, worth a look. However, this should be just one stop in Stalingrad/Volgograd to understand the WWII battle - be sure to visit Mamaev Hill with its memorial/museum and monuments, the central embankment (and... More

Museum has multiple levels, starting on level 1 are multiple halls full of history and things left from the war, takes you through a continuous story from the beginning to the... More
