The visitor can be only touched with moving parts: office of Lenin, mask mortuary of Stalin, Trosky clothes, letters and photos of the Russians who took part in the Revolution. The Museum service is pretty well assured with a cloakroom and plans to not get lost in the large building, but for those who don't bed not Russian, the task is risky (parts have information about objects in English and Russian, while others are available only in Russian), however it seems that audio guides are provided at the reception for some rooms , and anyway a visitor who would like to make a visit to the Museum in approximately 2 hours could not read all of the legends.
