As someone visiting from the UK, it was fascinating to learn about the war from another perspective.
I had no idea about so much that happened in this part of the world
I paid extra for the headphones but I would say this isn’t needed as all the displays are in English too and the audio tour goes into a bit too much detail at time so takes quite a bit longer.
I’d definitely recommend it for a visit though.

We actually stayed at the Doubletree down the street, and had a nice view of it. The entrance architecture is really well designed, and the whole place has so much to offer.

Nice new museum with a good presentation of the Great Patriotic War (WWII). There are many halls with history of the events leading up to and during the war, particularly the Belarussian involvement in it. As a non-Russian speaker, I would have liked to see more signs / easy to read signs in English. Overall, a nice museum, though.

Best place to go to in minsk to learn about the county's dark history druning world War II. I can see tangible evedince of how people were turtuerd in contcrtation camps in the old country side of Belarus. However the museum also show the bright side and how did the Belarusian people, overcam the dark side of the war and worked on building one of the safest countries in Europe.

Amazing detailed explanations of one view of the WWII. Well organized, audio guide available (must take a photo ID for that)

Great and compact Museum of the Great Patriotic War - good to couple with a visit to the Stalin Line - not far from the capital Minsk. Both are worth the time and effort.

My wife and I visited this museum to learn more about the USSR experience in WWII and we were not disappointed. It was a different perspective than we usually get in the US or Western Europe and we both learned a ton (despite already knowing a fair amount about WWII). Would recommend a half day if you’re with someone who will want to read 50% of the exhibit descriptions and more time if they’ll want to read them all. Also - don’t forget your passport if you want the audio guide! They need them to check the guides out to you.
