Contrast of memories
Sep 2016
The museum was well maintained with lots of old photos, artifacts and displays. This is the expectation, and this is what we got ... So no surprises. Outside the museum were some old WW2 machinery (tank, trucks, artillery) upon which you can touch, and explore. It is a nice feature, and unique now-a-days not to have some sort of fence or barrier to separate you from the artifacts. Just adjacent to the museum building is a large memorial plaza with a statue and monolith to the unknown soldier (plus an eternal flame torch). The back of the plaza has many marble slabs to forever chronicle the names of the fallen soldiers. The plaza and the museum were extremely well kept, clean, and timeless. This offered great photo opportunities. ADDITIONAL VISITOR'S NOTE: If you have time to spare on a nice-weather Saturday, you will also witness a regular stream of wedding celebrations at the memorial plaza. Across the plaza is an official administration building where couples get married. When we were there, every 30 minutes new wedding parties emerged down the steps in full tuxes and gowns, taking lots of family photos, and then crossing over to the plaza for more photos. Many wedding photo parties were quite elaborate in preparations with releasing of doves, floral arrangements, etc. Though not related to the visit of the Military Museum, it is very interesting for visitors like me to see this contrast of military memories infused by new bridal memories.

When you first walk in you're greeted by a memorial sculptor/mosaic/stained glass, its beautiful. The second floor has photos, information and items from the Great Patriotic War.

Staff very happy to show us around, none of our group could speak Russian and staff could not speak English..A place where language does not matter as the museum tells the story.
