All reviews embalmed body kremlin wall queue starts red square resting place soviet leaders armed guards surreal experience yuri gagarin closed on mondays security check no photography soviet union russian history take photos on display visiting moscow
I would say is a MUST. I am not a friend of such historic person but seeing him one century after his death is impressive. The queue is long, be prepared to wait for long. Access is free, in the complex you will se also...More
Red Square holds many historical sites but the Tomb is unique. Lenin was one of the Fathers of the Revolution and is still held in high regard by the Russian people. He died around 1925 and was so revered that Russians came from all over...More
We had seen the queues on previous days so planned accordingly, arriving at 8.15 for its 10am opening. We had about 6 people in front of us.
When the line was allowed to move forward we had around 20 in front of us. Without the...More
This is a must do if a rather fleeting experience. Shame the queue is usually around an hour whatever time you join the line. Fascinating to witness an embalmed body and my kids were not freaked out by the experience. It’s quite an incongruous experience...More

You won't need a tour merely for Lenin's Mausoleum. The sight itself is free, and there is a long queue outside. Just need to spare time to queue, since the mausoleum inside only would take 5-10 mins, they will not let you stay inside nor take photos.

I visited it on a Wednesday. This was the day a policemen told me it would be open. It was not open the other days I was there. I could be wrong on the exact day. But i do recall it was during the week. Just ask the policeman that are stationed by the mausoleum.
