  • A very interesting and detailed synopsis of a fascinating time in history. Be aware that Courtroom 600 can only be viewed through windows as it is being renovated at the time of this review...

  • Very sobering visit to the Court building and especially courtroom 600. Really felt part of world history standing in the room. The displays in the exhibition were well presented and you could scan...

  • I like big old buildings with a purpose
  • Very interesting to see how the Soviet influence affected the other 12 trials following the obvious and most famous initial trial. A very good museum. I'd like the audio translated to english text. You would be right if you thought the Soviets would want to fry them all, it got political quite quickly.
