Museum of the Great Patriotic War

Not for the faint-hearted, the Great Patriotic War Museum showcases the horrors of World War II. Included among the exhibits are a model of a Nazi concentration camp, and an interesting section depicting the Belarussian resistance movement.

Information & Facts

25 Skoriny Avenue
Russian and Belarussian are both official languages, with the majority speaking Russian.

The currency is the Belarussian ruble (BYR), which is equal to 100 kopeks. There are no coins in circulation (plastic cards and tokens are used for the metro and public telephones). Currency and travellers cheques can be exchanged at banks and official bureaux de changes in Minsk and the larger towns. US Dollars and Euros are preferred and some currencies may not be accepted. Exchange offices may reject old/damaged notes and it is advisable to keep all receipts for exchange transactions as these may be required on departure, or when re-converting your leftover rubles. Mastercard and Visa are accepted at the larger hotels and tourist restaurants, but American Express and Discovery cards are not accepted at all. ATMs are widely accessible in major towns and banking hours are weekdays from 9am to 5pm.

Opening Times
Tuesday to Sunday 10am to 5pm
Local time is GMT +2. (GMT +3 from last Sunday in March to last Sunday in October).
