“Memorable place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

I went there right before 9th of May, the museum is huge and has a lot to see and explore. At the end of the excurtion you have this special feeling of the war times.

“I was very impressed”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2013

It's large and much thought has been put to remember all who perised in the WWII. It is a breathtaking site that will most definitely impress you. If you want to learn more about the part of the war that took place on the eastern front, this is a good place to do so.

“Well worth the trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2013

There aren't that many artifacts here but the somber tone of the war is on display. On the upper level there is a hall honoring the Heroes of the Soviet Union and on the lower level there is a room honoring all the Russians who died in the Great Patriotic War. There is a beautiful park to walk around outside the museum and a very photogenic arch. As a plus, the escalator in the metro station is one of the longest in the world.

“Powerful, well done, very Russian”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013 via mobile

Visited here on advice of local and we were all very impressed with the layout, order and professionalism of museum. Shop selling guns and replica bullets etc will take your breath away. Other amazing sights include tanks etc museum nearby (boys liked that) an the most stunning, extraordinary sculpture I've ever seen - a memorial to the Holocaust. Quite devastating and beautiful. So glad we got here.

“A must see!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013

This place is fantastic! I spent all day. It does an excellent job of portraying what the West calls World War II, and altho it does not even refer to the western front or southern fronts, it does an exhaustive job or explaining and bringing to life what happened on the eastern front and what living thru it was like. There was an unforgettable film about the partisan experience, which will haunt me forever - subtitles were not necessary, but this film is not for the faint-hearted. Also, a very moving Hall of Memories. Russians sure know how to honor their war dead and heroes.
