  • Not the first time I come to this museum. The first time was still a schoolboy, memorable Exposition on guard. 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.

  • Been there on the night of 31st December 2016, precisely on my dreams for a banquet, Although it was unique, I just could not understand a word due to my lack of Russian until a security guard greeted me in English
  • Wonderful museu that shows with details the most famous face of the russian political history. They have an incredible collection of videos and pictures of politicians and political facts. I would only recommend them to increase the quantity of itens explained in english (even though they have booklets with the translations, it is not same thing and consume a lot of time).
  • Good information but very little and confusing structure
  • 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.
  • 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.
