  • Went family 3-5 may, to tears! Each exhibit is the original, weapons, photos, documents, personal belongings and whole lives. The museum was very impressive, only with a guided tour!!! Or with an audio guide. Tell in detail for each meter of battle. Realistically everything is shown. Minus the Directorate: all the groups were mostly Germans, go without queues. Our Russians stood waiting. Not allowed to the top of the diorama, the receptionist said only groups of foreigners ((but we collected the compatriots and took them with a fight. As a result, all the children showed. The review in the book of complaints left. Because of foreigners there were no audio guides ((sorry that descendants Heroes are not allowed in such places ((then after the call of the dress, we were asked to show everything out of turn. Shame on the admins!

  • It is better to visit in the first half of the day immediately after the opening-there are few people, no crush, perfectly obtained photos. Then buses start to arrive with a lot of people.
