Unfortunately this museum is owned by devoted putinist, whose aim is not to expose horrors of KGB, but rather to promote some attributes of USSR. Be ready to pay 350 kc for extra small two rooms (which look more like souvenir shop) and rude service.

More a collection of curators artifacts than a museum. Tour lasts approx 1 hour. Lost of exhibits and knowledge of curator if very good. Lots of acting from the guide.

The history and practices of the KGB are presented and explained by the very talented and passionate owner: weapons, spying tools are detailed along with historical facts. There are tours every hour.
