Central Armed Forces Museum of Russian Federation, Moscow
(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. 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.

  • Visited with her father-he is retired military. Among the halls cannot be selected one-all are remembered and make up a complete picture of our Army from Petrovsky Botica to modern Armaty. Naturally a large part of the exhibition is dedicated to the GREAT PATRIOTIC WAR and Soviet army-it's the most terrible ordeal in the destiny of our country. Personally, I saw the things people and plunged into events which only read in the memoirs: rifle Lyubov Pavlyuchenko, which she sent to more than one hundred fascists flying jacket and glasses celebrated ASA Alexander Pokryshkin. The original wall of the Brest fortress with the inscription "I am dying, but don't give up! Goodbye, motherland ", which made July 20, 1941 GODA (! month!) together with the transferred from molten glass with embedded metal simply will forever remain in my memory as a living, I have personally seen an example of heroism also there you can step into an interactive museum where there are demilitarized samples small arms and bladed weapons (quite blunt, so it too can apply the term demilitarized)-all you can touch-up children pishhshhat

  • For myself am following classification: 1) military conflicts of the early 20th century. From interesting: Honorary Sabre battleship Empress Maria-Born Lieutenant belonged to Virenu (ordered by means of the Wardroom officers served on a ship for at least one year), fragments of the Cruiser "varyag" raised off the coast of Scotland in the year 2003. 2) the period between the world wars. From interesting: Finnish posters calling the Red Army to exterminate political instructors and give up captured Japanese flag-a gift writer and officer's sword Stavskomu V.p. of the Japanese army. Another curious oak shield with Józef Piłsudski's companions names and names of cities. Given to him in honor of 15-year anniversary of the Polish military organization (Polska Organizacja Wojskowa). Trophy of the RED ARMY, Grodno, September 1939. 3) Great Patriotic war. Well here you can enumerate the curious exhibits. See for yourself:) 4) German-fascist occupation of Soviet territory and the rest of Europe in 1939-1945. Note the manual press for German ammunition under Soviet weapons and subversive means "wedge Tengiz Shavgulidze (works on the principle of a one-time railway arrows). 5) army and Navy since the end of World War II and up to the present day. Oxygen mask Boris Vladislavovicha Kapustina. 6.04.1966 he and co-driver Y.n. Yaniv cost their lives took emergency yak-28 from West Berlin. 6) outdoor exposition of military equipment. You can go and watch it. Grannies-supervisors only don't bother. Hang, for example, under the ceiling in the Hall of flags, one of which is Naval. Ask: what is this naval flag? In response, only wild scared look and disbelief:)

  • Was with two boys aged 8 and 11 years. Held in the Museum of four hours. First we did a tour (booked in advance by phone) about the great patriotic war. It was interesting to me and the boys-after the tour both with round eyes said "cool". 50 minutes, in plain language, with interesting stories and the opportunity to touch, see. Very impressed and not handed over Moscow taking German orders, the victory banner. Then minutes 40 children held in the interactive Hall-form can be worn, weapons-touch, wear ... swords, gun, archery, you can shoot ... Then went to Cafe Eh roads-it at the museum works-poedi pasta in pot nautically:-) In conclusion, resembled weapons exposure on the street-there are p-300, Su-WCI, howitzers, armored train etc etc want more a couple of times to go, take tours of war with Napoleon and 1 world ... Advise.
