The rooms of the museum that were open were reallyy interesting and the staff were helpful. Unfortunately around half the permanent exhibition was closed for renovation. Once it's back fully open I'd definitely recommend.

Great place to view Russia's contemporary history, with beautiful architecture, cheap ticket price (250 rubles) and the 100 years of the Russian Revolution temporary exhibition, this place could not go wrong!

A very interesting museum that provides a lot of information and displays items relating to contemporary Russian history. Most of the rooms have a couple of electronic displays that provide information in English about various relevant topics. There are toilets and a small gift shop.

Some rooms have a sheet of exhibit information in English, but we could have done with a lot more. Audio guide wasn't in operation. Still glad we went though.
