Your personal guide will pick you up at your place of stay and accompany to the museum of The Great Patriotic War.  While travelling by metro your guide will enlighten you on the role that the metro played during the war as you will be passing some of the most beautiful metro stations.

As you arrive to the Victory Museum you will be astounded by the magnitude of the exposition both inside and outside.  The museum is located on the Poklonnaya Hill - one of the highest spots in Moscow. From here you will get an exceptional view of the city and enjoy the “Victory Park” that spans over 2,400 hectares.

It is easy to become overwhelmed in a museum that spans 3,000 square meters and has over 6,000 exhibits – your guide will take you to the most notable parts of the museum. Imagine yourself in the midst of a battle of Stalingrad and on the streets of blockaded Leningrad with life size 3D reconstructions. Learn what were the historical precedents that started the War, what was Joseph Stalin’s role in defeating the Nazi’s, what battles had the most impact on the war and much more.   

After visiting the inside of the museum you will be able to go outside and pay you respects to the victims of the War next to the monument “The Tragedy of the People”.

Continue to the open-air museum of war machines and marvel at the real weapons of the war. Explore the famous Soviet T-34 tank and Katyusha rocket launcher that were fundamental in defeating the Nazis. Take a picture next to fighter warplanes and battle-hardened ships including the British war plane “Hawker Hurricane” and the Soviet torpedo boat.

After the tour you will gain a much better understanding of the intricacies of the greatest War that humanity has ever seen and that fundamentally, it is the strive of the people and their beliefs that win wars rather than machines.

Very good and powerful tour of an amazing museum/memorial. The guide did a wonderful job of showing us around the museum and telling the story of the Russian struggle.
