A landmark museum that tells you the story of the Great Patriotic War. New building, well arranged artifacts. Shame the room attendants don't care much and it appears they tried to save money on translation...

There were moments when it brought tears to the eyes...
And after find your name in the hall of fame... x2 take the emotions.

Really sorry that the Museum was moved, because the building is not "fit" the history that is represented there. But it's quite beautiful! Rooms are spacious, comfortable temperature and a 35.

Были моменты, когда наворачивались слезы на глазах...
А после того, как находишь имя в зале славы... х2 к уже полученным эмоциям.

Действительно жаль, что музей перенесли, потому как здание не "вписывается" в историю, которая там представлена. Но оно по своему красиво! Залы просторные + комфортная температура воздуха в +35.

Really well put together exhibits, with lots of interesting detail in English. Recently renovated, this is one of the best museums on WW2 I've seen. Must see if you're in Minsk.

Beautifully designed Museum with a rich exposition.
See military news, see the military equipment of those times (maybe it copies the technique, but is very high quality). A lot is told about the partisan movement in Belarus.

Прекрасно оформленный музей с богатой экспозицией.
Есть возможность посмотреть военную хронику, увидеть военную технику тех времен (возможно это копии техники, но выполненные очень качественно). Очень много рассказано о партизанском движении в Белоруссии.

Very interesting. I think it's worth going, especially if you are already very aware of factual history and will be able to interpret the history displayed in the museum

The nazi did horrendous things, but in this museum is nowhere to see what happened in Siberian concentration camps. The war is good for nobody (or maybe for few), we should not be so proud of armies. Armies and Weapons are just made to kill. So easy is that. I am curious to know why the Red army didn't bomb the railway going to the nazi concentration camp in the early stage. Why they were just looking when the Nazi were in Poland in front of them?
