As the other reviews will tell you, this museum is a must see if you’re in St Petersburg. The large forecourt has masses of military hardware on display to see free of charge, and inside there’s plenty more - for a modest admission fee. There’s...More

Not sure what to expect from this when we walked in. But it was very good indeed. Huge collection of tanks, rockets, artillery pieces both inside and outside. There is also an excellent collection of other Russian military artefacts inside. Only downside is there is...More

A great place - inside and outside. Tons of artifacts from 16th century to modern cannons, tanks and missiles. Outside is free and can be a great walk in itself. You only need to pay in order to see the exhibits inside.

Visited with VOYAGES JULES VERNE which didn't include either admission or the option to visit in free time. From the scale of the forecourt exhibits, it can be assumed that the museum building is worth a visit.

This museum is brilliant. Not a lot in English but you can work out what most of the exhibits are. This is also one of the few places that sells a guide book in English. Be warned you have to pay to take photos at...More
