The Panorama museum was originally built in the late 19th Century, to celebrate the siege and battle of Sevastopol in the Crimean war.
All the other commentators who classify it as a Soviet museum are wrong. It pre-dates the soviet period.
It was, however, heavily damaged in the great patriotic war, and then faithfully restored afterwards.
Fascinating. Not many painted panorama's left. It's worth the trip to Sevastopol alone, even if this is the only thing you visit.
You can see it on the top of the hill from the railway station when you arrive.
