This is a very cool place if you are a World War II buff. There are open air exhibits of artillery, planes, trucks and tanks. The outdoor statues of warriors are amazing

If you like war history then this is the place for you. It has an extraordinary collection of WW2 memorabilia. Mostly horrific in nature. A very sobering place. Fabulous GRAND Soviet war monuments adorn the grounds.

One of the friends I was travelling with had seen mention of this and we planned to visit but came across it even earlier almost by accident. Fantastic setting in the shadow of the amazing Rosina May monument and a memorable visit.
