I was very excited about seeing the KGB Muzeum however, it was not what I expected. Although the tour guide was very passionate and animated, it was hard to understand his English at times, which was unfortunate. The museum is small and simply a room...More

We didn’t know what to expect, and certainly what we got was different to any other museum we have ever visited. The whole experience was very entertaining and will live in our memories for many years to come.
