On Poklonnaya Gora (Hill) in the Victory Park the Central Museum of the Great Patriotic War of 1941-1945 is located, which is also known as the Victory Museum. There you can see an extensive exposition devoted to all periods of the war, the Hall of Fame and six dioramas.
This museum was created in 1995. The Hall of Fame is under the huge dome in the center of the museum. The statue of the Warrior of Victory is in the center of the hall. And on its walls, on marble slabs, there were carved the names of 11 800 Heroes of the Soviet Union who received this title for military deeds.
Two large wings diverge from the Hall of Fame where you can see various expositions devoted to the war. You should visit the Hall of Commanders, the Hall of Memory and Sorrow, as well as the three-dimensional panorama «Battle of Berlin. The feat of the standard-bearers». It reconstructs the steps of the Reichstag where Soviet soldiers left their inscriptions.
There are also 6 dioramas devoted to the main periods of the war: the counter offensive of the Soviet troops near Moscow, the Siege of Leningrad, the Battle of Stalingrad, the Battle of Kursk, the Forcing of the Dnieper and the Storm of Berlin.
