Military Museum
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.

  • This is one of the best military museum in the world, a good place to learn Soviet and modern Russian military history with big indoor permanent exhibition from the beginning of the Red Army to the present day. Outside of the museum also displays hundred of key military equipment and vehicles of the Red Army. I recommended this museum for people who love military history, you could spend a whole day enjoy digging the Red Army history.
  • One of the best military museums in the world since the exhibition is huge.
  • Relentlessly interesting. Part of a downed u2 spy plane covered in Xmas tree lights was a little odd. War time style food is served. Outside is full of military vehicles.
  • Great collection and highly organized!
  • Here you can find fragments of U2 spy plane. You can eat here army style food.Also you can find here fragments from Kursk atom submarine. Enjoy
