The Central Museum of the Great Patriotic War, opened on May 9 1995, is located in the base of the Memorial Victory Complex on Poklonnaya Hill and covers more than 48.000 square meters.

The Museum consists of the Entry Hall, the Halls of Glory and Memory, the Picture Gallery and six dioramas devoted to the most dramatic battles of the Great Patriotic War, two movie theatres, a hall for veterans' meetings and an exhibition hall.

The military display acts as a chronicle of the war through official documents, letters (official and personal), newspaper articles, photographs and paintings. In the Hall of Memory there are show-cases containing books with the names of those who died. An automated search system is being installed to help visitors find information on these soldiers more easily.
