Man can feel so small in there. Specially outside, close to the building. Inside, there are displays with historical posters, soldier and partisan clothes, weaponry and so on. Was there few years ago.

Special event prevented easy entrance. Walked around the outside and viewed the war machine displays. Many groups would come in, ignore the signs and climb up on the tanks for pictures. See pictures
