Military and political history w

The Museum of the Great Patriotic War is located in a four-storey building. On the lower floor there are six thematic dioramas, which were made by the masters of the studio of the battle-painter M. Grekov and show in chronological order the key episodes of the military events. The main object of the first floor, where also the Hall of Remembrance and Sorrow is located, is the sculptural composition "Sorrow", made from white marble by the carvers P. Nosov and I. Kruglov. The illumination and minor music create the special atmosphere in the hall. The ceiling is decorated with thousands of crystals, as a symbol of tears, which were cried for the dead. The vast hall and gala staircase, where the main expositions are displayed, occupy the main part of the second floor (the Hall of Commanders). The bronze busts of recipients of the Order of Victory, the highest military honor awarded by the Soviet Union, are set up along the perimeter of the hall. The author of these busts is Zurab Tsereteli. Near the entrance of the Hall of Glory there is a composition "Sword and Shield of Victory", which has the pieces of high art value. This composition is richly decorated with semi-precious stones and the sword is made of famous Zlatoust steel.

The museum houses such amazing exhibits as rarity, but functioning plane U-2, famous all over the Europe tank T-34, high-explosive bombs with 250 kilogram weight and, of course, beaten symbols of fascism - the state flag of Nazi Germany, heraldic flags and orders of the Wehrmacht.

The special excursions and programs are held in the museum for the children of different ages. The excursion-quiz is very interesting, because kids look for the answers to the questions by themselves in exhibits of the exposition. The relay-race "By the partisan paths" will make your child to use sharpness and adroitness, while plunging into the partisan days. In the finale of the game all children will get some awards and will be ordained in partisans. To make the learning process easier all excursions for kids are held in interactive format, making the familiarization of information better and faster.
