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.

I was very glad to visit your museum since I am a big fan of firearms. Best regards.

The provided information is interesting and not available from school text books. The museum has a broad range of weaponry and other associated artefacts. Charles and Elizabeth Parker. Sydney, Australia.

Thank you for letting us visit this beautiful museum visiting our Russian friends. This museum was the main purpose of our trip. My son had fun assembling a real “Kalashnikov” gun. It was his first time. He did not do it in 45 sec. But maybe we can visit again and he will have another try! 05.06.2011

Guest from England
A great honor to meet and see the famous designer in his home surroundings. Even better that our paths didn`t cross earlier as I was a soldier in the Danish Army – thank goodness it turned out this way – friendly and peaceful! 04.04.2011

I am a firearms instructor from the USA and this was a great experience for me to visit the museum. The history of the AK-47 is one I've studied a lot. Thank you for this opportunity.

Thank you for such an interesting exhibit on Mikhail Kalashnikov and his inventions. I particularly enjoyed learning about his childhood.

The greatest assault weapon in military history. In Northern Ireland the “Weapon of Resistance” (AK-47) and favoured instead of the M16 by the Irish Republican Army (IRA). Greatest exhibition. 02.03.2008
