I loved our tour on the Lenin icebreaker as it was very educational and I learned about how icebreakers worked. Having worked on cruiseships this woke up some memories of the life onboard a sea vessel.

The Ice breaker trip is a great way to know the history. They also have some very nice rare pictures.

Brief advice: go there six months later.
Be sure you are into history of technology and engineering before you visit. You will learn about how a nuclear icebreaker works, see where it started fifty years ago, there are some games for kids you get to play. See how did sailors live, eat. At the december of 2013 the icebreaker is still under reconstruction very much, so you don't have to hurry. They will expand it much within a year. There are some weird "art" objects around the icebreaker, which look out of place very much. Basically it's a huge old ship, beware narrow corridors and steep stairs. For geeks and nerds like me it's just what's needed. Tip: Do not ask stupid questions about radiation levels.
