There were in this museum 3 times. Several floors and a lot of interesting things to see. There are virtual games for children. Films about the war. You can hold a weapon in your hands and take pictures

The architecture of this building alone blows me away, also the landscape around it is pleasant to walk around on. The city cleared up the river along it well enough so that you can see this beauty when arriving/departing Tula by train. It's a great improvement for the city and will definitely drive more and more tourist in each year.... More

If you are a group of 5 girls it would probably interesting for you but I'm not sure. We didn't have much fun. There are some multi-media things but that's it. Price didn't worth it.

This a verry informative museum, it is in a total different set up than we see it in Western Europe. Modern building that shows many different weapon systems produced in the Tula area.
