Didn't really go out of our way to get here as if you are walking down the main road you will come across the golden gates.

It's important to realize that this museum is located in what used to be a fortress gate on the road to Moscow. Strangely, many of the exhibits are focused on World War 1 and 2. The diorama is neat and if you know how to ask politely there is an English soundtrack available.

The Golden Gate and the museum are very much worth visiting. The museum focuses on the Mongol invasion in the 13th century. See more here. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Golden_Gate,_Vladimir. I loved seeing the Gate and the city of Vladimir.

The Golden Gate is an interesting landmark from the outside and houses some very interesting historical artifacts. There is a lot of information to be found inside and is definitely a must for a tourist in Vladimir. Beware of the stairs, there are quite a lot. Probably too much for an elderly person but very manageable for the majority of... More
