While there wasn't an English translation of every Russian story board, there was a summary English story board for every single display case. i found it to be sufficient, and it is a moving story, told with real artifacts. Staff made an effort to be helpful. my only objection is that we all know the guy who set up this museum was executed by Stalin shortly thereafter and the museum was shut down until the Soviet era ended. Why did the Soviets object? Why was the museum founder killed? This needs to be added to complete the story.
