There are 5 floors and in typical Ukrainian fashion, you can pay per floor. I did the WW2 one and it was decent. Also a decent amount in English which was surprising!

I spent a very pleasant few hours here and would probably have spent longer had I not been pressed for time. It's situated right on Constitution Square but the front entrance appears to be undergoing renovations - some sort of construction, anyway, though I never saw anyone doing anything there - so you have to go in the back. Not... More

Five of the hugest tank battles in the world were fought here or close by and only a bit of square footage is dedicated to this story. What a shame.

Visited back in OCTOBER 2013, it rained very hard that day. We can see the wwii tanks outside of the museum; they serve as the main weapons of choice for the Soviet Army during WWII. Inside however, has under construction during the time I was there, therefore, didn't know what interesting weapons from the war were there. QQ~~
