Take a stroll down history. This is a lot of Soviet military equipment. It prides itself is showing the technology available for WWII and beyond.

Excellent outdoor exhibition for the military buff. Tanks, missile systems, aircraft etc. Huge sculpture groups depicting the pain and power of war. A place to honour courage and sacrifice including the Heroic Cities of the Soviet Union.

I really enjoyed to visit this museum and also learned a lot of things about 2nd world war. They have kept and showed many pieces and documents as well.

If you like war museums, you will love this. I think it is more of a "mans" type museum with a huge collection of articles on display, from both WWII and recent war. There is so much detail to see and everything is well marked...More

Yes I agree you need 2 to 3 hours, mainly because much of it is outside and spread around and the hill top park it is in and the views it gives are a large part of the visit
