The museum is located in the very center of the city near the railway station.
You need to go around the Intourist hotel, and in the courtyard you will see an inconspicuous signboard and a simple iron door.
The museum is small compared to the panorama of the battle of Stalingrad, but successfully complements it with many installations on the theme of the events of 1942-1943.
Definitely worth a visit!

This took us an age to find but was well worth the persistence. It is small but full of interest in this underground location - please see my photos to help explain how to get there as the door is an unexpected entrance to a museum and there is no signage which can be seen easily.

This museum occupies the dingy basement of the Univermag department store. This is the location in which Field Marshall Paulus had his last headquarters and from which he surrendered the 6th Army. Paulus and Schmidt's rooms can be seen and the displays are excellent. You can get a feel for what those last days of the Third Reich in Stalingrad were like better here than anywhere else in the city.
It is not obvious to locate - the Univermag is behind the Intourist Hotel. An unassuming metal door leads down into the basement.
If you are visiting 'Stalingrad' then you absolutely MUST see this museum.
Entry is free.

It is actually some years since I saw this incredible and haunting museum and I have been told that several years ago the new owners of the The Department Store, The Univermag - in the basement of which this museum is located, had dismantled it and dispersed the relics and artefacts on display. To make way for more retail space !!!!!
Now I am led to believe it still exists. If it does then it is a must see for several reasons.
Firstly. All the items on display are genuine relics of the Battle and/or were personal possessions/equipment of Paulus and his HQ staff. You can see the appalling conditions he and his staff lived in while directing the futile attempts to avoid total the destruction of the 6th Army and its eventual capture by the Red Army. The radio used to communicate with the outside world and Hitler via his Army superiors, the bed in which he and his deputy Schmidt slept - in turns - the little sick bay and so on. This is Living History.
Secondly. You can then walk upstairs into modern commercialism as the Univermag has been rebuilt and is a real life operating western style department store selling everything and anything. Time passes and historical events fade in importance. ????

When I visited the museum I was intrigued that at the very entrance to the corridor that leads to Paulus last HQ there was, of all things, a petshop selling anything you might need for the successful care of your pooch or bird, cat etc etc.

Fantastic real like atmosphere re-created in the dingy cellar premises combined with an array of artifacts to rival the Panorama museum which the State has naturally aired with a dignity and respect due to those who witnessed the 200 day battle zone. The Paulus museum was the stand out memory of our 14 day Volga trip and I am in no way a WWII buff. Panorama has English audio but no English translation of the artifact/showcase description whereas Paulus has English.
Bonus, Costs 1/3 of Panoramas entrance ticket and I could take photos free of charge.

The museum's location is the the former site of General Paulus, the German general in charge of his country's army during Stalingrad. It was cool seeing maps and placards that fleshed out his situation, but be warned that while there is some English and German translations, some stuff is only in Russian. Still, it doesn't take a linguist to enjoy what you see here!

Definitely worth visiting while you are in Volgograd. Has a good collection of pieces from the war and dioramas. It was interesting to visit the place General Paulus lived during the siege of Stalingrad. You can request the start presentation to be done in English which is good. It is easy to miss the entrance to the museum as it's tucked off the main street but use the picture to identify the entrance.

The multimedia presentation (in English, on request) is much better than a circular painting. Also, authentic historic location of museum and English signage. I spend longer here than the much larger Panorama Museum.

If you go to Volgograd, you cannot miss this museum. It is small, but it contains a good collection of material from the war. Its exibits are very well presented, and have descriptions in Russian adn English. You can easily spend a couple of hours in it.
