Updated: Feb 12, 2019

This is the must see museum in Moscow, because it will give you a better understanding of the huge impact of the Gulag but also on the impact on Russian culture today.

An impressive museum of the history of the Gulag, a network of camps on the territory of the USSR between 1929 and 1950.

'The museum, in its subject, mission, history of origin is included in the category of museums of memory, at the heart of each of which lies a painful event, which is difficult to comprehend.'

Especially the interviews with 'survivors' are very powerful.
