I took my English boyfriend to the Panorama because he mentioned his interest in Borodino battle and War and Peace. In general the museum creates a clear image of what the Russian culture, the Napoleon war and the generals looked like back then, and also provides a clear explanation of what was actually going on in 1812 in Russia.

While the story, like most wars, is a sad story, it is delivered in very level headed way. The panorama on the top floor displaying a 360 view of the battle with appropriate props.

The main part of the museum is a huge realistic panorama depicting the Borodino Battle during Russia's war with Napoleon in 1812. It's well done but I don't think it's a must-see if you aren't a fan of panoramas/wars/Napoleon, etc. If you are, you might also visit the Victory Park dedicated to WWII - it's within a walking distance on...

so first how to get here, the easiest way is to take the metro to Park Pobedy and than follow the signs to Park Pobedy and the museum. When you exit the metro you will still be underground and want to turn to the left. Walk a bit pass the triumphal arch in the middle of the street and the... More

A very interesting place to visit if military history or the Tolstoy novel War and Peace is your thing. It is, in essence, a massive painting that is in a 360 degree setting that documents the Battle of Borodino, I had seen it on tv but to visit it is another thing. There's lots of portraits, other art work and... More

The museum is medium size. The first floor includes cabinets with military items, portraits of the most important people connected to the 1812 War and the basic information about the key events. The second floor is the panorama itself. Very life-like, impressive image of the war, which gives you a chance to feel yourself a part of the event. It... More

Interesting exhibition around Napoleon's attempts to take Russia. Highlight of the visit is viewing the 150 foot long painting of the battle. Fantastic to see. Its a little bit out of the centre but easy to get to by Metro.

Artist, Historian or simple traveller like myself, you will find the Panorama of the Battle of Borodino fascinating, informative and easy to access. Take the Metro to Park Probedy and walk up the road for five minutes. The detail in the Panorama is meticulous and there is a good explanation of the events prior to rising up to view. It... More

This is a very good show that makes the course of the battle clear. in a very comprehensible and graphic way. Besides the diorama there is a hall where personal possessions are displayed.
