Lenins Mausoleum, Moscow Reviews

  • Waited 6 hours in line, free entry of course. Once I got in, looked like time froze. I heard a bang and glass shatters everywhere, someone touches me on the shoulder and I look back, it says " товарищ, я здесь, чтобы сказать вам, что через 19 лет мы проведем еще одну революцию. Я вернусь!" which translates to "comrade, I am here to tell you that we will hold another revolution in 19 years from now. I will be back!", "да товарищ ленин" I say, which translates to "yes comrade Lenin". Lenin hands me a Red Soviet Star which says CCCP (USSR) on the bottom. Looks like I have a free souvenir now, I turn back around to see if I'm dreaming.. I'm not.. I turn around again to thank Lenin but he's laying in the mausoleum again, time goes back to normal, I put the star in my pocket and the guard, who I just noticed says that your 1 minute is up, you have to go. I walk out of the mausoleum, look if the star is still in my pocket, and it is! I get a taxi back to babushka's basement and show her the star, she says "Откуда вы взяли эту советскую звезду из" which means "Where did you get that soviet star from". I say that I got it from Comrade Lenin, she doesn't believe me but she says that they were only handed out to Comrade Lenin's best assistants. Weird, very weird. What a good day.

  • Exactly what one should expect when visiting a mausoleum. Taking pictures not allowed, entry is free, but there's usually a long queue (it moves pretty quickly though). You are able to see Lenin for dozen of seconds when slowly and quietly walking by. Seemed well preserved. Go before he's buried! :) probably won't take much longer.

  • The experience of a lifetime. Overwhelming and unforgettable. Better go there around 9am and wait in line rather than later since they close at 1pm. Line forms on the right handside not in the front. Please be quite and respectful of one of the most influential figures of the history. Visit Stalin's grave just behind the mausoleum too.

  • one of most memorable experiences in Moscow — seeing Lenin with my own eyes. exteremely well preserved, extremely long line under the sun. the mausoleum is right across the GUM mall on the Red Square. beware that the gate closes exactly at 13:00, no matter how long people have waited to enter. make sure you start queueing before 11 AM. no ticket is necessary, it’s free.

  • One of the must go location in red square. You should not miss this location. Plan well since this mausoleum close by 1pm every day and they are closed on Mondays. There will be a huge queue so plan in advance.
