The museum hospitably opens its doors to everyone who is interested in the history of the Great Patriotic and World War II. It is the largest national repository of the material and spiritual monuments of military history.

Created among the ruins and ashes in newly-freed Minsk in October 1944, has been carrying out and continues to carry out its high mission of commemorating the Great Victory over the fascism during the whole time of its existence.

The magnificent museum building was erected in a symbolic place of the Belarusian capital - next to the stela "Minsk – the hero city" and is included in the museum and park complex “Victory”.
