  • The building was big, new and very respectable. The dolls in the exhibition were all real and a little creepy. There was a souvenir shop near the entrance, but it was not so cheap.

  • I do not compare with anything in the old museum was not. It is very pleasant-big halls, interesting ekkposition. A lot of biographies of the participants of the Great Patriotic War, even too much, is not possible to remember. At the entrance to the museum played the song "Cranes", to tears... I recommend to visit with children-younger schoolboys.
