  • We were with a child in Volgograd twice and both times we came to Mamayev mound, climbed to the monument "Motherland Calls!" despite the fatigue or the heat. The memorial complex includes the house of Pavlov (which is also called the house of friendship, meaning the friendship of soldiers), miraculously survived fountain, mangled tank, the museum itself. The museum makes a strong impression, nothing like it we have seen. If it is applicable to museums in general, then this museum is stylish, aged in a single spirit, in a red-black-gray theme, absolutely monum...

  • You can't go to Volgograd and not visit the Museum-Panorama of the Battle of Stalingrad. The museum will be interesting for both adults and children. You will learn about the feat of soldiers, officers and posts of the inhabitants of the city, who went through the horror of this large-scale battle. The museum has been updated and now you can see the exhibition there, but also listen to the story of the Battle of Stalingrad and its heroes. Children will be interested in combat vehicles and planes of those times, which you can look up close, climb on them.

  • The museum is modern, there are a lot of exhibits, tours are held, I repent that I did not prepare in advance and did not learn that the tours go every 3 hours. We got to the museum when the group had already left, and they didn't want to wait for a new one - there were many plans for this only day in Volgograd. So I recommend to study the schedule in advance. We took an audio guide (didn't like it), but were able to catch up with the tour already on the top floor, where there was a diorama. A very professional, ardent and likeable tour guide. You'll hear it. Next to the museum is an exhibition of military equipment, children are happy to climb it, it is allowed.
