Great Patriotic War Museum, Minsk Reviews - Write a Review
Worth to visit for facts about WW2. A lot of installations and artefacts. About 30 million people from USSR were killed or died. Always remember.
A great historical place to view for all ages! Saw many cool WWII weapons, there are English explanations for the important elements shown in the exhibitions. Be warned though, it is quite a sad place when you view the photos of WWII, a young kid in the family cried. Otherwise, it is a pleasant, educational experience for everyone
It is a great patriotic war museum.
Huge modern museum. All its objects are kept well, all the descriptions are accurate and written in belarusian/russian/english. Offers guided tours and souvenirs as well.
Fascinating and also all the narrative is in English.
