This museum is now fully open and it is well worth the trek out of town. It is possible to cut through the Borisova Park, itself a worthwhile diversion, to avoid the worst of the busy roads and to see some Soviet era monuments. Outside...More

There are many uniforms, photos, weapons, tanks, aircrafts, helicopters and etc. The building have 3 floors of history and historical artefacts. Perfect for children. The yard is enormous full of war machines. I used to go there once I a year.

Really good museum and it is half price on Monday and Tuesday. Says staff only but was all open. Tickets are around 2 Euro. Possibly the best place to visit here. About a twenty minute walk from the nearest Metro. Well worth the walk.

There is so many tanks, planes, missiles, trucks of all forms. Was very surprised by the stock. Some museums have only a couple of tanks or so, but the variety was impressive.
