(4.1/5 based on 150+ reviews on the web)
Explore the role of the armed forces during the Soviet era at Central Armed Forces Museum of Russian Federation. Lenin himself established the museum in 1919, with the purpose of informing the public about the Red Army's exploits and victories, particularly the achievements following the October Revolution. Examine the museum's themed halls, including exhibits about the Russian Civil War, World War I, and World War II--known in Russia as the Great Patriotic War. Of particular interest is a copy of Lenin's written decree that outlines the creation of the Red Army (RKKA), on which his corrections are visible. If you're in the mood for a military-themed meal, head to the on-site restaurant.

  • Visited the Museum for the autumn holidays. I believe it is necessary to visit all parents and children)) a pleasant bonus provided an exhibition of weapons and equipment, the exact title does not say the child was delighted-we tried on hats and clothes, supported in the hands of weapons. There is only one comment to museum management: when we went out on inspection techniques, it was snowing and all plaques describing the technique were zaporosheny by snow and there was no way to shake it, as they are far enough away from the fence. In the end, we just saw the technique, but could not get any further information about it. If the plate were closer to the fence, and visitors could shake the snow off them and get full information about the show, it would be just great.
