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.

  • For those who love military museums is a full plate! One of the best museums I've ever been to! Worth and super indico. Not to mention that there are a lot of planes and tanks outside.

  • Military weaponry is part information in Russia, I didn't know that was used in World War II, such as had been displayed. Outside, such as tanks and missile array. How to exhibit something like as if to show off the military power of Russia. I think that kinda geeky facilities.
