    The museum fund is mainly based on the items found by prospectors at the sites of former battles in Tula, Oryol, Kaluga and Leningrad Regions from the 1990s to the present day.

    The permanent exhibition chronologically explores the events of the Great Patriotic War since June 22, 1941, when Germany and its allies attacked the USSR, until Victory Day on May 9, 1945.

    The events related to the heroic defense of Tula in the autumn and winter of 1941, as well as battles of 1942-1943 on the north face of the Kursk Bulge in Chern, Arsenyevo and Belyov Districts of Tula Region are presented in details.

    The museum features more than 1,000 exhibits: from items of trench life and personal letters to the German machine gun with a jammed belt. All the items were found on the battlefields and bear the stamp of this horrible time.

    The interactive part of the museum is presented in the form of a recessed shelter mock-up below the floor level. Anyone can get into it, take a famous Shpagin submachine gun or Mosin rifle, and feel the weight of the soldier’s helmet.
