Then again, 2008 year, remember arguing with worker Hall, what blasted cottage Stolypin. This time went with a girl, her subject political inquiries and special services too interesting. Hall for activities of FSB, KGB is the same as before. Photographs and documents to apprehend the spies, weapons seized from hijackers, photos and documents related to the Chechen campaign. In the second Hall was a temporary exhibition on the work of Soviet spies in the 30-IES and during WWII. The exposition is closer to "Dokumentzentrum" than to "Museum". The third Hall is dedicated to the history of the Imperial Guard of the Office and the CHEKA. So I figured that the Hall would be renovated, because now it exhibited only copies of documents. But I read them was interesting. Unfortunately, information on BOPSR and other "boevkam" the beginning of the 20th century. This topic would be of interest to many. Especially interesting is the Bolshevik leaflet "how to behave during the interrogation". The fourth Hall is a reconstruction of the Cabinet of F.e. Dzerzhinskogo. Visit time took about 50 minutes.
