No other country suffered more casualties than Russia during WW2. This museum truly pays homage to all those fallen heroes while taking you on a journey which, with a bit of sensitivity will make you feel the pain this country has gone through ever since....More

One of the best museums I have been, and I have been to many, many museums. Unfortunately there's hardly anything in English, and it was very frustrating. They definitely invested a lot here, but dec8ded that it for russians only. What a pity.

The massive Victory Park and Victory Museum are worthwhile to visit during your time in Moscow. This place helps foreigners understand the Russian perspective to what they call the "Great Patriotic War." It's also helpful in understanding the role that propaganda and glorification of the...More
