  • Museum unlikely, dusty, held by old Russian speaking not a word of English, quite aggressive, who spent their time to follow us in every room in us crabbing loads in Russian because we read not wisely only two signs in English that exist in this museum. Unfortunately there is nothing interesting outside of the office of the Chief of the Gepeou reconstruction. It is at the limit a Museum of the 1980s to the glory of the KGB, little more. Could suit the nostalgic french, there more than we think.

  • This is a really interesting museum, a must for anyone really interested in history, vastly underrated. The exhibits are welcoming, and some effort has gone into providing English language explanations. The path to follow within the museum is not obvious though.
  • Excellent museum. I wish we had more time here. Everything was written in English.
  • The museum outlined the political history of Russia. Full tour will take you hours. Shorter version of the tour takes about one hour. Audio guide is available for extra charge. It gives you the brief idea and the exhibition includes more details.
  • A good place to know more about Russian history, but a bit boring.
  • Highly recommend if you are interested in the Russian revolution and Soviet history. The strangest exhibit is the portrait of Stalin in a prison cell.
