  • well done exhibition starting in the 19th century up to the annexion of the Krim. Good exhibits and almost everywhere english explanaitions. The last years with a very Russian view 
  • This famous Museum, where I was still brezhnevskom childhood within the framework of the compulsory school curriculum is in an ideal location in the heart of Moscow with 1831 to 1917 years it housed the Moscow English club. the artist's father was working there, which I had today. The beautiful artist-chronicler of the history of the 20th century Ivan Vladimirov exhibition became one of the first produced by the Museum to the centennial of the great Russian revolution. Recommend to visit very interesting work.

  • Everyone who lives and comes to Moscow I advise to visit the Central Museum of modern history in Tvesskoj, 21. I am convinced that you will be satisfied and will not regret about the time the real exhibits documents lead the visitors during the reign of Alexander 3 and up to the present day. The museum itself is an architectural monument of 18 century. Up to 1917 year-English Club Centre of Russian political and public life, and in 1998 the Museum was renamed. I noted with particular interest and excitement touched with the breath of history, I have experienced unexplained feelings of pride, sadness and joy for my Russia. Each exhibit attracts, because behind him unusual people with his fate and history. Do not follow them, feel like they loved and believed in a bright future.
