  • Perhaps avoid if you dont like stairs, as there are many to get down and up. Very interesting tour focussed on the Cuban Missile Crisis. 
  • One of the most unusual and memorable museums I've visited. And had to visit many, believe me. The cold war, the monumental building in the heart of Moscow! 60 meters in depth, 18 floors down and then forced to walk upstairs to experience a lot. At least, just a little bit, value date. Of the Museum is not cheap because it's a private story, rather than the State. Even wonder how it all started ... Adult on 2016 year entry cost 700 rubles.

  • During a visit to Moscow we have formed two hours of free time. Since we were at the Taganskaya square, we decided to visit this museum. The theme of the cold war and military confrontation between the two powers, probably not the most interesting from the fact that you can choose in Moscow. But if you're interested, then you are in the right place. Very wide exposure, Visual and dramatic, backed up by documentary footage of the era. Get ready for the immersion in -18 floors, and on foot. Down and back. ("What did you like most about the tour?" asks Guide.-"the last three steps!")
