  • Pretty good Museum, in General, it was interesting to visit it, even people who are not too interested in history. Many exhibits were interesting to look at.

  • While it was a Museum of the revolution, exhibits somehow placed. Now, when it pushed all of the last three kings to Brezhnev, became quite closely. But children may well be reduced, let look at real tachanku.

  • Not the most popular place for tourists and Muscovites, judging by the number of people on the weekend. However, the exposition is large enough, presented clothing, utensils, weapons, personal belongings, photos, etc. related to 19-20vv. A little not completed, dedicated to rebuilding the Hall appeared, but seems to have simply been temporarily limited access portion of the exhibits. 12.12.2016 g. Hall is expected to open on 21B. Also in the ticket (250 rubles) includes access to 2 etc. exhibitions, located in the building.
