It's free and it's close to Arselna metro on the way to Motherland monument. The statue of the little girl and the artwork before the exhibit were the highlights.

Visited the memorial on a cold and snowy Saturday with my traveling companion. I was unable to visit the museum, but my friend did the following day and said it was well worth the visit.

Came here by an accident and was really pleased with this beautiful architecture. It's really tragic what happened and it's important for us to remember, so it never happens again. Recommend everyone to visit it if you are in the area.

I think everyone should visit this museum. It is a part of our history that we should never forget. It leaves you with a good reason to think about how lucky you are living today
