Well set out and interesting museum. When we were there they were having an army parade and commemoration, the band and display were very colourful.

“Paying hommage to those who lost their lives in the Second World War”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012

Victory Park, and the 141m Victory Monument erected to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the ending of the Great Patriotic War - victory over Nazi Germany, - is a chilling yet worthy tribute to the millions of Russians who lost their lives during WW2. We first visited the square at nighttime when it was full of people and security forces during a pop concert celebrating Moscow's 865th anniversary. It was a bustling place, enhanced by lights and fireworks. When we returned a couple of days later, the square was totally empty - deserted! It would be impressive to watch a Remembrance parade here, and to have an opportunity to visit the Museum of the Great Patriotic War. What also struck us is that an Orthodox Church, a synagogue and a mosque are situated around the square/park.

“Another mega place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2012

A magnificent memorial on Poklonnaya Gora has been built to commemorate the Victory. Many veterans take part in the military parade and lay wreaths on the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. A lot of guests from different countries of the . world come to Moscow to participate in the celebrations.

“Don't leave moscow without paying a visit here”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2012

On our way to borodino museum we found our way to this museum and I am glad we got lost as the visit was worthwhile. A must see attraction! The museum serves as a memorial place to those who fought in WWII and is a great way to show children some history of a recent war. The battles are depicted rather artistically on the walls and there is also an interesting collection of weapons, personal belongings etc. One will definetely be touched and realise Russia's important role in the war.
