  • Interesting museum that traces the stages of the battle of Stalingrad. Mostly artillery, uniforms and paintings, medals Russian officers who took part in that battle, but captions photos, films and plastics. Unfortunately almost all (illustrations of various findings) in Cyrillic, except for the audio guide (not used) and explanations about salt (via qr code) in English. The hotel has free WiFi. It all turns into an hour and a half.

  • very great for historians and history teachers. or anyone interested in what happend when Volgograd was Stalingrad. THe musuem is full of items from the war. 
  • Even if someone visited once in the Museum, be sure to visit again. The Museum of reconstruction were, ongoing updates. Very many halls, new exhibits. It just needs to see and know. It is our memory, which should not fade over the years. Of course, a monument impresses with its greatness.
