The museum has great displays of military memorabilia and outside a large display of aircraft, tanks, missiles, etc. But as others state no English translations, so you really need a guide to make the most of your visit. We went there on a tour, therefore...More

A great display of military memorabilia - uniforms, posters, weapons, armor, etc. I'm a female and not much interested in war stuff but I found this fascinating. Only problem is that all descriptions are in Russian so you might not realize what you're looking at....More

This museum is crammed with military equipment and artifacts inside & out. There is unfortunately no information in English apart from a 1 page handout giving you the titles of the various rooms inside the museum, hence 4 stars and not 5. There are loads...More

A fascinating exhibition of Russian and Soviet military history. Of course, an extensive display on the 'Great Patriotic War' (as Russians refer to WW2). Best if you can take a Russian friend with you to translate, as pretty much all explanations are written in Russian.

Would definitelly recommnend it, full of history, two floors with armory and weapons, great place to spend your midday, because it is open until 5:30pm. Quite cheap as well.

Maryina Roshcha (Jewish Quarter)
It’s impossible to visit the Jewish Quarter and not go
to the Jewish Museum and Tolerance Center – all roads
lead here. After visiting the most innovative museum
in Russia, cross the street to taste some delicious
kosher food. When you’ve tried the best hummus in
Moscow, explore early Soviet architecture by going to
the Theater of the Russian army and take a rest in
Ekaterininsky Park where boats and ducks keep everyone
