This museum is relatively small, but very comprehensive. The collection of armament (aircraft, tanks and artillery) is impressive.
The memorial located in the museum square is formed by a well-designed sculptural space that shows in an extraordinarily eloquent way the suffering of the Ukrainian people during the war.
The exhibition of the museum is dedicated to the Second World War, emphasizing the contribution of Ukraine in the victory over Nazism.

The Museum of the Great Patriotic War is located right next to the Pechersk Lavra. It was opened in 1981 to commemorate the German Soviet War and it is packed with tanks, cars, planes and other war remnants. Soviet war songs are played in the background throughout the visit. It is one of the most interesting places to visit in Kiev.

That's the memory of Ukrainian people, our pride and tears. You will dive in the atmosphere of war, heroism and courage.
Many things from those times washed by blood and tears will tell you terrible life stories about the war, struggles, survivals and death. We must never forget this moment in our history!

Great artifacts, but if you don't speak Russian, make sure you have a guide.
