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.

  • A must for all fans of Mitärgeschichte in Russian. Unfortunately, all in Russian is written. But the exhibits are well preserved and maintained. In the Museum in the great patriotic war and the 'perfect' victory over Nazi Germany is sinking

  • Large, well kept Interior Museum, with exhibits from the Napoleonic wars to the present day with some really important finds. Captions are in Russian and the Museum Board to those who have a smattering of military history (although I do not understand people who know nothing about running a Museum of military history in Russia ...). External exposure unfortunately suffered from the neglect of the years ' 90 but restorations are in constant progress. Inside there are two souvenir stalls (low cost) and a restaurant that plays a refuge for soldiers of the great patriotic war with the opportunity to eat the dishes used at the time. I have been twice but is always enjoyable.
