Visited this museum on Victory Day so the line was insanely long to get in, but apparently it's not normally like that. They had a lot of artifacts but all the exhibits were in Russian so you either need to speak Russian or have a translator. At the entrance to every room are English plaques explaining the contents of the rooms, which was informative. After visiting the exhibits make sure to head up the spiral staircase to the panoramic painting. The tanks and planes outside the museum are pretty cool to look at too. This museum was just OK but is one of the only attractions in Volgograd, so you really should make a stop there.

The biggest and best museum in volgograd, it houses many war relics and interesting antiques that were used in the soviet union, especially against the nazi's invasion during world war II. The museum is huge and spacious, everything is well places, and the best part is the top floor where there is a 360 panoramic view of an artificial battlefield, perfect for anyone who wants to get a feel of how was it was like when the Germans attacked volgograd in the past.A Unique item in the museum is the sniper owned by the famous russian sniper Vasily Zaytsev, whose exploits were even made into a hollywood film known as "Enemy at the Gates". a very memorable place.

Like a lot of my reviews of Stalingrad, I have to say you will need a guide unless you speak Russian. There is very little in English. Sure, it's not in the modern western style of museum, but it contains everything and more relating to the battle. If you've taken the trouble to visit Stalingrad, you are going to love this museum - just go and look at as much as you can take in. Outside is the Volga German mill building, one of the few remaining pre-war buildings.
