What people are saying:

Formerly known as the Museum of Revolutionary History, everyone can guess the focus of the collection. Of course, it's much more interesting than the cold revolutionary propaganda you think. However, the name was not changed for nothing. Today, the museum’s collections are almost exactly picked up from the end of the history museum and continue to the present day.

    So bloody frustrating

    For us this had the potential to be the best museum we visited on our trip to Russia - Moscow and St Petersburg. There were some wonderful objects on show, particularly from the contemporary/recent ...

    Excellent museum

    The lack of English aside, this is a comprehensive account of contemporary history right in the centre of Moscow. The building itself is fitting, the pieces try to build a narrative around a fascinati...
