Музей Победы в Москве откроется для посетителей 16 июля

The main building of the Victory Museum in Moscow will open for visitors on July 16, with exhibitions open until 10 p.m., announced the Museum’s press service on Tuesday.

“Our long-awaited guests will finally be able to experience the updated museum space, which we revealed online and on television on May 9.” Of course, these formats cannot fully capture the incredible wartime atmosphere and sense of complete immersion that come with visiting this new exhibition in person. The museum’s working hours have been extended in order to accommodate as many people as possible in this unique space. I’m certain that every single visitor will be deeply touched by this unforgettable experience,” said Alexander Shkolnik, museum director.

The museum will be open for visitors from July 16, with exhibitions open until 10 p.m. Tours will be available for guests to visit the new exhibition on the square, which recounts the key events of the Great Patriotic War.

“The museum is looking forward to welcoming visitors. However, in light of existing coronavirus regulations, the two-hour tours will be limited to 5 people at a time. The program is intended for children 6 years and older,” informed the press service.

In addition, guests will be able to visit The Parade of Winners museum’s new photo exhibition, which displays never-before-published photographs from the archives of the Ministry of Defense depicting the legendary march of 1945. The photographs have been specially digitized for this exhibition. The Victory Museum has also arranged The Feat of the People exposition marking the 75th anniversary of the Victory in the Great Patriotic War and celebrating the contributions made by workers and farmers on the home front, scientists and cultural workers, and ordinary wartime citizens.
