Interesting exhibition around Napoleon's attempts to take Russia. Highlight of the visit is viewing the 150 foot long painting of the battle. Fantastic to see. Its a little bit out of the centre but easy to get to by Metro.

Artist, Historian or simple traveller like myself, you will find the Panorama of the Battle of Borodino fascinating, informative and easy to access. Take the Metro to Park Probedy and walk up the road for five minutes. The detail in the Panorama is meticulous and there is a good explanation of the events prior to rising up to view. It... More

This is a very good show that makes the course of the battle clear. in a very comprehensible and graphic way. Besides the diorama there is a hall where personal possessions are displayed.

Visiting the famous Borodino panorama should be scheduled when visiting (and if) the hotel Ukraine, Moscow-city, Novodevichy monastery and Lomonosov university. All the above are in the western part of town, so you should count on at least half a day. The panorama is on the Kutuzov avenue (in the glory of the Russian commander) in a circular glass bldg....

What an unexpected discovery, this is a monument to the battle of Borodino in 1812 where Napoleon Bonaparte confronted the Russians just outside Moscow where they fort for just on a day. While both sides disagree on who won it seems pretty clear that the Russians retreated to Moscow and Napoleon made it to Moscow (only to have to retreat... More

Great museum, with only one topic in mind - glorious battle of Borodino in 1812. Main thing is marvelous and huge diorama which goes full circle around central viewing platform. Museum also has a couple of rooms in which are displayed various objects and military uniforms connected to this topic. Highly recommended.

There is a very impressive painting 115x15 meters and everuthing else in the museum is small addition to it. If you have time its worth to visit, its going to send you back in that time for a moment...it is great for history class for teenagers.
