... for what is is, and for the period detail of the interior (seriously). This ship was built in the '60s, at the height of the Cold War, as part of the peaceful technology race (as opposed to the space race or the missile race)....More

Getting inside a nuclear icebreaker, even one that has been out of service for 30 years, is not an everyday occurrence. The "Lenin" is remarkably well-preserved inside and the tour highly informative. You get to see a lot of what made these remarkable ships operate....More

We really appreciated our chance to look over the de-commissioned Ice Breaker. The ship is full of 1950s style furniture and instruments which gives it a real atmosphere. our guide showed us round intelligently. If you are in Murmansk, I'd rate it as a 'must-see'.

If you are interested in history this is the right place for you. The tickets are not expensive at all. I paid 100 rublos for a ticket + tour in Russian. If you are interested, there might be a tour in English. The whole icebreaker...More

We couldn't enter inside but it was interesting enough to see an icebreaker lying frozen on a harbour whose waters are not frozen. The regional studies museum in the city has a scale model and more information on the Lenin. Had to walk quite a...More

This ship demonstrates how powerful the Russians were, have been and probably are. Also how tough and disciplined their lives would have been. What would make it more entertaining and interesting is a bit of multi-media presentation to begin the tour, or even a simulation...More

I have not been on an icebreaker before, but I could imagine the people that worked on this ship all those years ago. The guide was informative and had given us ample photo opportunities inside and out of the ship. Lots of steep ladders to...More

Both tour guides at the Lenin spoke excellent English, perhaps you could ask at your hotel to call about the English tours. We stayed at the Azimut Murmansk and the young woman at reception called for us but, unfortunately... More
