This is a fascinating museum that offers great insight into such a horrific period in Russia's history. The tour takes you through all of the barracks and lets you gain an appreciation for how awful life was for prisoners there. Our tour guide's family had...More

This used to be state independently run, but a couple of years ago the state took it over. Since then prices have gone up from 50 to 500 rubel. The information in the exhibition does not focus on the suffering of the laborers but only...More
