Museum of the Great Patriotic War in the Victory park contains two levels with the memorial halls of Grief and Glory. In 6 dioramas in the first level images of major battles of the Eastern front (Moscow, Stalingrad, St.Petersburg, Kursk, Kiev, Berlin) are reconstructed quite vividly. The second level represents samples of weapons and amunition of two armies, along with the big collection of photos, artifacts (including Stalin's desk from the Kremlin study) and installations.
