Only original things of Stalingrad: weapons,clothes, bans,documents. Many of them keep too serious story. When you look at them they are simply intetesting things. When you hear about it you understand what happened here and how much was created to fulfil the main order "Kill...More

Best to contact the museum directly. I would also recommend a visit to Mamayev Kurgan. It is open every day and the memorial is impressive.
