In June 1943, battles for liberation of Ukraine, the country's leadership made a decision to establish the National Museum of Great Patriotic War of the Ukrainian people. Pretty bold decision, because before the Victory remained for about 2 years. But higher priority tasks of reconstruction and development of the economy, postponed the implementation for more than 20 years.

Today museum is located at the base of the monument "Motherland".

By size and importance, museum is one of the largest in Ukraine. His congregation numbered in about 400 000 items. This allows to regularly update the main exhibition and thematic-relic exhibitions: "The tragedy and valor of Afghanistan", "On Others' Wars", as well as to create numerous annual expositions.

Prepare that you can be quite tired at the end of the visit of museum because total length of all rooms is more than 5 kilometers. Presentation of historical materials performed by creating a readily perceptible symbols and images, as well as the fact that they are grouped thematically and chronologically — from the beginning until the last days of the war.

Interesting and informative Museum. A very large area. A variety of military equipment.Here you can spend the entire day just about the bottle of water should take care in advance (buy here, especially not where), lots of open space without shade.

if you are fans of military history and don't come here, simply you have not been to Kiev. the museum consists of all the outside in most areas including the exposure of many military vehicles, the inevitable visit to the statutes of the mother country, must-see there will be a full day

It's very Soviet, and absolutely worth an hour or two of anyone's time in Kiev. The views from the feet of the statue are excellent.... Even with the slightly scary tiny elevator ride to get there.

If you take the theme of the second world war, there is no doubt the Museum is excellent, with many exhibits, a huge exhibition of this military equipment, some equipment you can climb up and inside, which will appeal to boys and men (check for yourself :) ). But also, it is a serious reminder of the sacrifices millions of deaths. Visiting a Museum, you should not forget this...

Если брать тематику ВОВ, то несомненно музей просто великолепный: много экспонатов, огромная экспозиция настоящей военной техники, на некоторую технику можно залезать наверх и внутрь, что не может не понравится мальчикам и мужчинам (проверено на себе :) ). Но также, это и серьезное напоминание о жертвах, миллионах смертей. Посещая музей, не стоит этого забывать...

For an American, this museum offers a view of WW2 that we don't see often. The Ukrainian people and Kiev in particular witnessed much of the horrors from the war. The museum tells the story of the USSR's involvement in the "Great Patriotic War" after Hitler's betrayal. Occasionally temporary exhibits of current-interest will be curated in the main hall.

The museum is filled with historical artifacts as well as intriguing stories of bravery, tragedy, and loss. Absolutely worth your time to visit. Plan on spending several hours wandering through the displays. Take a translator or Russian-speaking friend if you don't know the language. They do offer tours in English but these are often monotone and dull. You will hear stories not written on the displays but they rush through with little time for questions.

Let's a person understand the hell Ukraine with through in the war. It was not like Poland but tragic situation for so many. But history shows Stalin may have kill as many or more by starvation and other means.
