Гордость нашего города. Давно хотели посетить музей Калашникова, и вот в майские праздники наконец-то это сделали! Всё супер! Всё понравилось! Это действительно гордость нашей республики! Народу в эти дни было много - это говорит о востребованности музея, пришлось, конечно, потолкаться в очереди, сначала расстроились - но потом поняли, что оно того стоило! Ничуть не пожалели! A тир музея просто настоятельно рекомендую к посещению всем! Спасибо вам, организаторы этого мероприятия!

Guests from New York

Signed up for both tours, the History of AK-47 (Kalashnikov’s life history) and the medieval weapons exhibition. My tour guide (provided by museum) spoke clean and concise English, therefore I was very pleased. I recommend both tours, there is a lot of rich history here from the early stages of Kalashnikov’s life, all his accomplishments and life experiences. You will learn and have a visual of all kinds of AK’s modifications and adaptations along with an explanation. I was quite surprised with the medieval weapons exhibition. You can learn a lot of different empires weapons styles and uses. Having a visual as clean and beautiful as presented by this museum gives you an impression of greatness, individuals put so much detail to their weapons and that in itself has a lot of value. I think the Kalashnikov museum for the great opportunity to learn such great history, and my tour guide for her dedication and passion for history, art and greatness.
