There was not much to see inside the museum, felt like waste of money. But the statues of Lenin and Stalin behind the museum were really great.

I didn't go in the museum, as it was closed, but around the back you can find 10 ton statues of Stalin or busts of Lenin. Totally amazing to see the collection, now very rare to see in situ. Impressive.
