  • I advise everyone to go, very interesting and most importantly, you can descend into the shooting range! To choose a lot of firearms

  • Interesting exposition for fans of weapons and points of interest-shooting gallery! Large selection of firearms. Law and driving don't forget.

  • Visited the Museum for the first time. It spent more than 2 hours. Not noticed how time flew by itself. All in one breath. A very interesting presentation of information via television (video). I watched all the movies: (thanks to Museum staff, prompted) took the Chair, sat down nearby and watched. Museum staff are very friendly, polite, cultured. If possible, going again.
