I have been here several times, this past time with my grandson, who is 9, and was visiting Russia for the first time. It was one of the places I really wanted to show him. He was too young to remember Gary Powers, but I thought it was important that he see the wreckage. Since his father was a soldier, and he was familiar with US military hardware, I think it was interesting for him to see the Soviet military hardware firsthand. And I think he has a better appreciation now that not only the US fought in WWII.
It is a great museum, and I really like to go there. I recommend it to anyone who has an interest in the history of the world over the past 100 years or so, particularly the military history, and particularly to get a Russian perspective.
