    This is a hotel pickup and travel by metro tour. Traffic in Moscow is busy so this worked out well. In winter the outdoors was snowed out so the gun/tank displays were closed. However the indoor section was comprehensive. School students were performing commemorative services. Russia takes the Great Patriotic War very seriously.

    Excelente!

    We got an excellent tour, our guide Serguei was awesome, we learned a lot from him and he was very patient and polite guy. My dad was very happy because we know all about Second War World, this museum is a must if u are in Moscow. Tuvimos un tour excelente, nuestro guía Serguei estuvo espectacular, muy paciente y agradable, conocía mucho sobre el tema y nos enseñó muchísimo. Mi papá estuvo muy feliz porque conoció mucho sobre la Segunda Guerra Mundial, realmente si están en Moscú es un museo que se debe de ver.

    Good experience and surely it was worth the time spent

    I found the World War II Museum very interesting and the whole experience was made even better by my professional tour guide, Sergey. Unfortunately we spent limited time on the Victory Park which was also nice to see; had the weather been better (warmer and without snow) the tour on the Victory Park would have been an even better experience.
