Victory Museum Tours

Victory Museum
Encircled by poignant monuments and memorials, the Victory Museum—or the Museum of the Great Patriotic War—is the focal point of Moscow’s Victory Park (Park Pobedy). Opened in 1995 to mark the 50th anniversary of the end of World War II, it’s Russia’s largest and most important museum of military history.

The Basics

Spread over four floors, the museum includes a main exhibition hall detailing the events of World War II, six large-scale dioramas showing major WWII battles, and an enormous permanent collection that includes military memorabilia, uniforms, weapons, letters, and personal effects. There are also multimedia exhibits, including a 3D depiction of the Battle of Berlin; a full-dome video projection; and the moving Hall of Glory memorial. The museum’s open-air exhibition of military hardware includes armored vehicles and artillery captured from Japanese and German troops.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Visitors can purchase tickets for the main museum, the outdoor museum, or both. Entrance to the Victory Park and memorials is free.
  • English information boards are provided, but visiting with a guide will give you extra insight into the exhibitions. 
  • On-site facilities include a museum shop and café.
  • The museum is wheelchair-accessible.

How to Get There
Victory Park is located in Park Pobedy, 9.5 miles (15 kilometers) west of downtown Moscow. Take the metro to Park Pobedy station (lines 3 and 8A), then explore the vast park on foot, or take advantage of the free transfer service that runs between the station and the Victory Museum (weekends and holidays only).

When to Get There
The museum is open daily except Mondays, but it’s possible to visit Victory Park and monuments at any time. The park is a popular spot for open-air concerts and events, especially on summer weekends and holidays. The most atmospheric time to visit is on Victory Day (May 9), when huge crowds gather to pay their respects, leave flowers by the memorials, and enjoy free festivities including a fireworks display. 

Victory Park
Victory Park is a large-scale tribute to the Russian soldiers who fought and died in WWII and to the sacrifice of the Soviet people.The five terraces symbolize the five years of war, surrounded by 225 fountains to mark the weeks. The park’s centerpiece is the towering Victory Monument, near the Grave of the Unknown Soldier with its eternal flame and Memory Hall, which is home to the Book of Remembrance. A series of memorials commemorate soldiers wounded in war, the Allied forces, and the victims of the Holocaust.
