  • Cool place. Worth a visit if you arrived to Izhevsk. Put a 4 because not fonat weapons and not willing to spend hours to examine the exhibits. Possibly hooked people condemn me, but the taste and color ... History of weapons strikes history people have dedicated their life to a beloved cause. Now such people less and less. It is a pity.

  • Honestly, the Museum did not like so much heard from acquaintances that you need to wait for him to visit the destroyed b after the lift to the second floor, exhibition hall, it's just the life story of the Kalashnikov assault rifle and no more ... who wants to shoot it of course, especially if the weapon does not hold, but when fired from all that is represented in their dash and for those who ask for money 5 shots. When travelling in Izhevsk, were going to go to the Museum of the history of Izhmash, but was closed and the Director on the question of where you can go with a grin replied: "well go to the Kalashnikov Museum!". With there, I realized why this smile ... The only thing that was pleasant-souvenir shop.
