    It should just come and see yourself! Very impressed with the interactive panorama! Liked children and adults! The only minus-combined toilet with a buffet (doors close and so the buffet smell toilet).

    Everything that is written, this is purely my personal opinion, but nonetheless. The Museum has never impressed. There are places of military glory, where you come, and inadvertently feel pride and patriotism for their country, at least slightly. But here was the desire to quickly see everything and leave. Outside the window was the summer and +30 degrees. And air conditioning in museums worked poorly, it was very stuffy! Plus (surely this idea is such as to create the atmosphere of) muted light is very dim. Fug plus Chiloé lighting nor the desire to run rather exhibits and get off at the lights! Panoramas of WOW so normal. But if you want to really plunge into those times and feel the pride and bitterness of the Bob, the best for this Museum in Minsk!
