Central Armed Forces Museum of Russian Federation, Moscow

(4.1/5 based on 160+ 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. Our Moscow vacation planner makes visiting Central Armed Forces Museum of Russian Federation and other Moscow attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • And then finally, brought here already. Interesting exposition, you can book a tour. Many interesting exhibits. Liked the interactive exhibit where you can see the equipment, weapons and all that to try and touch. Stayed at the Museum for four hours, then went outside to see the exhibition equipment. The very existence of the restaurant in the Museum bailed out "eh, dorogi ...", without lunch would force exactly on the street visiting exhibits was not enough.

  • In this museum I drove my father, I now it meant his son a lot of exhibits, exciting fun)) is worth noting separately Street exhibits-tanks, helicopters, guns, planes, thinking they already are tired, they piled upon mountains of snow, paint flakes, etc. Also negative, why so slippery? Is it difficult to sprinkle sand, salt or clean (and employees warn that slippery), there's also runs a lot of kiddies and curiously a lot of women in the situation)))) and that's a good thing))) separately worth noting on the territory of the Museum Café! Beyond praise! All advise and recommend) is very tasty and cheap!

  • The military museum can be combined with the visit to the Museum of writer and poet Dostojevski. The museums are located 500 metres away from each other. Interesting exhibition of heavy fighting of the Red Army against the Nazi armies of Hitler's Germany. The victory of the Red Army had to be fought for hard and with a high cost in lives.
